Coffeecake Connection

Gluten-free sweets for the holidays that rival their wheat-laden brethren


A cup of coffee and a sweet treat is one of life’s simple pleasures—and even more so when our gluten-free friends can join in on the fun. The preservative-free and optionally gluten-free classic treats from Coffeecake Connection are the perfect companion for any holiday gathering, with flavors to suit just about all palates. We sampled the gluten-free chocolate chip cake recently along with freshly brewed coffee, and were wholly impressed with the cake’s flaky crust and airy, rich inside with partially melted chocolate chips. The cake easily served eight—but it disappeared from our kitchen counter too quickly for us to count.

In addition to coffeecakes, the Chicago-based baker produces a range of cookies and brownies, all available in variations without gluten. Traditional cakes start at $18 while gluten-free options start at $20 and ship across the US. Visit Coffeecake Connection online to order yours or make someone’s holiday even sweeter.
