Dairy Free Whole Wheat Coffee Cake

IMG_6549A few weeks back I was on a mission to make my favorite coffee cake. We were having some friends over and I wanted to have something on the table for everyone to snack on. I gathered my ingredients and set them out to make my favorite recipe when it hit me; my friend cannot tolerate dairy.

I scrambled to find a recipe online that accommodated my needs but everything sounded so bland. I decided to try my go to recipe but swapped out the butter with vegan margarine and the sour cream with a tofu dairy free alternative. I have to say, it was probably better than my original recipe *GASP*. I swapped out the regular flour with whole wheat to help give the bread an even heartier flavor. I have made this version more than I would like to admit in the last few weeks. Less guilt means more coffee cake!IMG_6545
