Oh, wow!! The Coffee Cake Connection Company really knows how to make scrumptious gluten-free confections. The great thing is that they also know how to do it safe for those with celiac disease. All gluten-free products are made in a separate, dedicated gluten-free facility to ensure there is no cross contamination.
This packaged arrived at our home and we could hardly contain our excitement to eat them. They were packed in cute paper cupcake holders and were each perfectly risen with a nice sugared topping. You could feel even through the packaging that they were soft and fresh. The buttermilk cakes were each unique in taste but full of flavor. I love that they use real butter and ingredients and don’t include preservatives. It really shows in the quality of their products. Here is what we thought.
Milk Chocolate Brownie- This soft, chewy brownie was classic an delicious. It went perfectly with a cold glass of milk and was reminiscent of the delicious brownies made before needing to be gluten-free. These brownies had excellent flavor and even got the approval from my non-gf hubby.
Chocolate Caramel Brownie- I was drawn to this treat from the luscious smell alone…it was calling my name until I ate it! 😉 I took one bite and then let out a sigh with how delicious it was. It was indeed rich and sweet with a smooth caramel filling. This was my favorite treat.
Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake- My boys especially loved this slightly sweeter coffee cake. It reminded us of the great traditional flavor of a chocolate chip cookie. This one also goes great with a cold glass of milk.
Signature Coffee Cake- I thought this cake really let the buttermilk shine. I liked that it wasn’t overly sweet but still felt like a dessert. Top this with devonshire cream and lemon curd and you are in Heaven.
Triple Berry Coffee Cake- Raspberries, blueberries and boysenberries provided a sweet yet tart fruity flavor to this coffee cake. We thought this one was really nice because the berries made the cake even more moist.
Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake- When you think of traditional coffee cake, this would be the flavor that comes to mind. I don’t personally drink coffee but I think this cake would pair nicely with herbal tea or hot cocoa. It is perfectly sweet and spiced to provide great flavor.
Apple Caramel Cinnamon Coffee Cake- Fruity apples next to buttery caramel married perfectly. Again, the fruit made this cake even more moist. We liked this flavor and so did our boys.
Pumpkin Coffee Cake- I am a huge fan of pumpkin sweets so this was one I really enjoyed. This was probably one of the most moist cakes as well due to the soft, smooth pumpkin puree. This cake is good anytime but would be especially nice during the crisp fall months.
Cranberry Orange Coffee Cake- This flavor of coffee cake was our least favorite but was still nice. It was a good combination of flavors that would be great with some orange marmalade.
Double Chocolate Coffee Cake- I am not a big chocolate fan (except for brownies 😉 ) so this was a little too rich for my taste but my husband and boys gobbled it right up. They love chocolate and thought it had great flavor.
