Blueberry Coffee Cake

I was always confused about the word coffee cake growing up, since there's no coffee to be found in this sort of cake.  But I have always associated it with cake, fruity or cinnamon-filled, with a crumb topping.  My default is to whip up muffins, but sometimes it's nice to have something a little different, something that can be considered a little fancier.  This was a hit with the family.  We'll definitely be making it again! Enjoy!

Blueberry Coffee Cake
Makes 8" x 8" pan

Line an 8" x 8" pan with parchment paper.  Preheat oven to 400F.

In a large bowl, mix together:
½ cup corn flour OR ½ cup GF oat flour 
½ cup white OR brown rice flour (or half brown/half white flours)
½ cup tapioca starch
½ tsp xantham gum
½ cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. cinnamon

Add and mix in just until combined (don't overmix, it's okay if there are a few lumps):
¾ cup milk (lactose-free or other milk substitutes work as well)
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
1 egg

Add & fold in:
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Spread into the prepared pan.  

In another bowl, chop with a pastry cutter until crumbly:
¼ cup butter, chilled
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup brown rice flour
½ tsp cinnamon
pinch salt

Bake at 400F for 25-30 minutes, until nicely browned on top (cooking time varies depending on whether you use frozen or fresh blueberries).

Place pan on cooling rack and let rest 5-10 minutes.  Then you can use the parchment paper to help remove the cake from the pan to continue cooling.  Great warm or cooled. Enjoy!
