Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

For a decadent twist, use raspberries instead of the mixed berries and chopped pecans instead of almonds. Drizzle warm coffee cake with a powdered sugar glaze.

This recipe was created for our new Betty Crocker® Gluten-Free Rice Flour Blend available in grocery stores in late July. Until then, feel free to try this recipe using any gluten-free all-purpose rice flour blend found in larger supermarkets and co-ops.
