1. Can I use a different type of flour?

While all-purpose flour works best for this recipe, you can experiment with alternative flours such as whole wheat or gluten-free flour. However, note that the texture and taste may vary.

2. Can I use regular chocolate syrup instead of the Skinny Mixes Salted Dark Chocolate Espresso Syrup?

The Skinny Mixes Salted Dark Chocolate Espresso Syrup adds a unique flavour to this coffee cake. We highly recommend using it for the best results. However, if you don't have it on hand, you can substitute it with regular chocolate syrup or skip it altogether.
