For the Cake

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. In a bowl, whisk together coconut milk and apple cider vinegar.
  • Add eggs, vanilla, and maple syrup and mix thoroughly.
  • Fold in the almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt to the batter until no flour clumps remain.

For the Crumble

  • In a bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut sugar, melted coconut oil, and cinnamon (there will be small lumps in the mixture, this is the good stuff).

To Assemble

  • Line an 8X8 pan with parchment paper or grease with oil.
  • Pour ½ the batter into the pan (should be just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle ½ cup of the crumble mixture on top of the batter and spread evenly. Pour remaining batter on top and sprinkle with remaining crumble mixture
  • Bake for 28 - 33 minutes until you can insert a toothpick in the middle and it comes out clean.

For the Icing

  • Melt ¼ cup coconut butter (this is best done in a double boiler or make your own by adding coconut butter to a small pot and placing it on top of a larger pot with simmering water. Stir until the coconut butter reaches a liquid consistency. Add 1 teaspoon coconut oil if needed.)
  • Drizzle icing over top of warm coffee cake, cut, and enjoy!
