What makes this gluten free coffee cake special is the addition of healthy  walnuts and cinnamon. Most coffee cakes made with butter are heavy and high in calories, but in this recipe, we used buttermilk instead. Buttermilk is low in fat and adds unexpectedly moist texture. This gluten free coffee cake recipe comes together fast and easy and is truly special. Serve as a snack or add our easy to make vanilla sauce to make this gluten free dessert extra special
