Ingredients
Cinnamon sugar mixture
1/4 cup coconut sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Coffee cake
3 cups almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut oil, room temperature
3/4 cup coconut sugar
3 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup cashew or almond milk (I used almond milk)
1 tablespoon coconut oil (for after baking)
Glaze
1/4 cup coconut butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-3 tablespoons almond milk
Method
1) Make the cinnamon sugar mixture: in a small bowl, combine the coconut sugar and cinnamon. Mix well and set aside.
2) Make the coffee cake: preheat the oven to 325F (163C) and line a 9″ x 9″ square pan with parchment paper. I used a lined 9.5″ springform pan.

FYI, this springform cake tin is the best one that I have used so far. I bought it from Aldi. If you see any in stock it, buy it!

3) In a medium bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir until evenly mixed.

11) While the cake is cooling, make the glaze: in a small bowl, combine the coconut butter, honey, vanilla extract, and almond milk. Mix until smooth and thin enough to drizzle on the cake.
12) Once the cake has cooled, top with glaze.

4 days later – the cake was just as moist and sweet.
