Gingerbread Coffee Cake

This vegan and gluten free spiced gingerbread coffee cake is topped with a buttery pecan streusel and a vanilla bean glaze. It's tender, moist, perfectly spiced and absolutely delicious!

If had to choose one breakfast pastry to make all winter, it would 100% be this gingerbread coffee cake. The cake is packed with warming gingerbread spices. It's perfectly tender and not too sweet, so it's perfectly acceptable as breakfast.

The streusel topping adds a crunchy, nutty, buttery component, and the sweet vanilla glaze ties everything together. Feel free to substitute pecans in the streusel with finely chopped almonds, walnuts, or even sunflower seeds for a nut free option. Apple cider vinegar is an essential ingredient, as it reacts with baking soda to create a rise in gluten free and vegan baked goods. NOTE: wait to add the apple cider vinegar until right before you bake this cake, otherwise the reaction will occur too early in the baking process. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
