Here’s how the easy process goes:

  • The night before, you whip up two concoctions, one in a blender, one in a small bowl. You layer the recipes in a greased crock pot and place the no-fuss heat on Low (for 2 hours).
  • You make one more treat, the quick one-bowl frosting. Put it in the fridge and go to bed.
  • The next morning your house smells like a bakery and there is NO work as you serve this gooey pudding bread to your fans/family.

Bonus: the cream cheese frosting has probiotics. What??

Yes, this sweet buttery dish is good for you, yet tastes like a wholesome dessert.

Remember to set your cream cheese out on the counter about 2 hours before making the recipe, so it can come to room temperature; or put it in a bowl of hot water, still sealed, for 20 minutes. The following recipe has two variations you'll see below: one for GAPS/Paleo, and one for Keto/Low-Carb. Follow the ingredients for your dietary protocol accordingly.

Ingredients
Coffeecake Batter
  • 10 eggs grass-fed
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup grass-fed butter melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup flax seed meal
  • 1/4 cup local, raw honey for GAPS/Paleo; for KETO: use favorite low-carb sweetener like Monkfruit Sweetener (see link in Recipe Notes)
  • 1 Tablespoon sustainably-sourced gelatin, see link and discount code in Recipe Notes below
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda, sifted
Cinnamon Syrup Layer
  • 1/2 cup grass-fed butter melted and cooled slightly
  • 1/2 cup local, raw honey for GAPS/Paleo; for KETO: use favorite low-carb sweetener like Liquid Monkfruit Sweetener (see link in Recipe Notes)
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 8 ounces cultured cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup local, raw honey for GAPS/Paleo; for KETO: use favorite low-carb sweetener like Liquid Monkfruit Sweetener (see link in Recipe Notes)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Grease the crock pot, using about 1 T. butter or rendered animal fat.
  2. Combine the following ingredients in high-powered blender: eggs, flour, butter, honey (or low-carb sweetener), gelatin and vanilla. Blend 20-25 seconds. Scrape down the sides and pulse as needed.

  3. In a small bowl sift together flax seed meal and baking soda. Turn on blender and add flax soda mixture. Blend 10 seconds. Set aside.
  4. Combine syrup ingredients in a small bowl, whisking until mostly blended. Set aside.
  5. Place cream cheese frosting ingredients in food processor or mixer. Process, pulsing, scraping down the sides of the mixing bowl as needed, until well blended, about 30 seconds total. Refrigerate.
  6. Layer batter and syrup: pour 1 cup batter into bottom of crock pot, spreading it evenly. Top with 1/3 cup drizzled syrup. Repeat layers finishing with almost a full cup of the syrup.
  7. Set crock pot on Low heat for 2 to 2-1/2 hours. The coffeecake is ready when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with dry crumbs adhering.
  8. Serve using a large spoon, plating each piece upside down, so the moistest, gooiest side is facing up. Top with dollops of cream cheese frosting. Or pour warm cream over the top, or cultured cream, or sweetened warm coconut cream.

Recipe Notes

*Cultured cream cheese is tangy and stronger tasting than most commercially made cream cheeses. If you want the frosting to be milder, substitute half the cream cheese with room temperature butter or use all cream cheese. I like the fully cultured because it's lactose-free, thus easier to digest and safe for the GAPS Diet.

  1. This sounds amazing! I love that you can make it in a crock pot + the cream cheese frosting … one of my favorite things! Have this one pinned for when i get a crock pot again.

    1. Thank you! You will love it for your bone broth too! Then the hardest dilemma is how to free it up. I’m at the point where I think I need two crockpots, LOL.

  2. This sounds delicious, but unfortunately my family cannot tolerate flax seeds. Do you know of anything that work well as a substitute?

    1. Jody, can your family tolerate chia seeds? If so, you can make a meal by blending them in the blender and use that….

    1. Hi Tobi, I would recommend 325 degrees Fahrenheit. The time will depend on your baking dish. This is a BIG recipe; so it will more than fill a 9×13″ pan. It will be done when the center is puffed and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with dry crumbs adhering. 🙂

    1. Yes! Filling, which is why I like it for breakfast; but small portions for dessert would work. If so, it fill feed many! This recipe makes 8 BIG portions, so easily 12 smaller ones.

    1. I have a big oblong one! So the slightly smaller round crock pots create a taller cake. How about you? Are you concerned about this issue or did you already make the recipe? I’d love to hear your experience.

  3. I’ve made this twice now – it doesn’t seem to have enough cinnamon topping so I doubled it this time. It is so delicious! Thank you 🙂

  4. Is there any way to cook this on high the morning of? My crock pot doesn’t automatically shut off (it’s 13 years old), so I can’t cook overnight; and 2 1/2 hrs is a long time to wait for breakfast in the morning… Thanks!

    1. I wouldn’t do high because I’m afraid the bottom would get too dark. You could start it on high for 30 minutes? and then turn it to low after that, maybe, which would at least shorten the overall cooking time. Good luck if you try it! 😉

      1. Well my kids woke me up early this morning (Sat) so I turned on the crockpot at 6:30, and it was ready at 9 on low. (I prepared it before bed last night.) 🙂 ‘Twas delicious!

        We are dairy-free, so I substituted expeller-pressed coconut oil for the butter, and doubled the amount of cinnamon in the cinnamon syrup layer. For the cream cheese frosting, I made a dairy-free “cream cheese” frosting with cashews in the blender (from: http://www.theconsciouskitchen.com/2013/03/perfect-vegan-carrot-cake-with-cashew-cream-cheese-frosting/). The breakfast was a hit with the whole family! Thanks for the recipe!

    1. I’m afraid that in this recipe they are needed. There are too many to sub them out. Sorry! 🙂

  5. Can I mix the cinnamon syrup butter mixture together and leave at room temp overnight? I am trying figure out ways speed up the cooking in the morning. I don’t want all of the ingredients in the crock pot overnight in the refrigerator. The crock pot itself is mainly what I want to keep at room temp. Also, I want the cinnamon mixture to pour in the morning.
