Yeasted Sour Cherry Coffee Cake #SundaySupper

So, I’m not gluten free, but because I have other food allergies, I take them very seriously. I also have a mostly gluten free diet and post many gluten free recipes here. I’m not gluten free all the time, so I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to constantly be worried a restaurant or food item could be contaminated with wheat and make me sick ....more
