Dessert is one of those courses that I prefer to eat with others because it is usually an indulgent moment after a meal, and it’s always sweeter to share the moment with friends and family. Somehow there is ALWAYS room for dessert.

For Celiac Awareness Month (May), we are celebrating 31 days of gluten-free cooking by sharing 31 delicious dessert recipes throughout the month on our Facebook page. We want to give our followers great ideas for dessert recipes to share with loved ones.

Here is one of my favorite desserts to share with the people who warm my heart: Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake.
