Shipman House Gluten-Free Coffee CakeFrom SHIPMAN HOUSE BED & BREAKFAST INN
The first recipe is gluten-free for you who cannot digest wheat. At Shipman House Bed & Breakfast, we try to accommodate those guests with dietary restrictions, and this is one of those recipes. We call it a coffeecake, but it contains no coffee (yes, people do ask!), and would more properly be called a Macadamia Nut Crumb Cake. If you have a nut allergy, just omit the nuts...and you didn't need to be told that, I'm sure.
Topping--Blend together, set aside:
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 egg whites, whipped until stiff but not dry
Add to yolk mix:
Fold egg whites into the batter. This part takes effort and patience. Spread gently but smoothly in a greased and floured 9" round pan. Sprinkle topping evenly over the batter. Bake 325 degrees F for 20 minutes, then 350 for 15 minutes.
