Gluten Free Cinnamon Bun Coffee Cake

gluten free cinnamon bun cake with frosting

This is a super easy breakfast or coffee “cake” that is put together in less than 10 minutes.  It also keeps soft in the fridge for a week which is unusual with rice flours.  I find balancing out rice flour with some sweet rice flour works really well in my recipes.

1 1/2 cups fine rice flour – i use Asian rice flour

1/2 cup sweet rice flour or glutinous rice flour
