I was on the computer last night, trying to catch up on my blogging, when I got an email from Kerry (Totally Target). We were joking about how we are both late night bloggers. It occurred to me then, I had no idea what I was going to make for “Snack”urday.
Some of my best ideas come out of necessity. I also have one of those strange minds that goes on tangents. Kind of like this.
- Kerry reminded me of Snackurday.
- Kerry is such a great blogger friend.
- I have met so many nice people blogging.
- Like Greta (reader) who emailed me about liking my strawberry recipes.
- I love strawberries.
- I wish I could get together with all of my blogging buddies and just sit down a have a cup of coffee.
- Oh, I will make Strawberry Coffee Cake.
This is how my crazy brain works. I wish I could blame it on my kids, but I think that this is something I have done for quite awhile. Scary?! Huh?!
So, I jumped in the kitchen this morning, and got busy. I whipped up this Strawberry Coffee Cake! Hope you can enjoy it over coffee with some friends!
Strawberry Coffee Cake
First things first, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- ½ cup butter, softened (1 stick)
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. salt
- 8 ounces (1 cup) sour cream
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Grease and flour (or use Baking spray with flour) a square pan that is at least 8×8. You could use 9×9 or 10X10.
Sift together dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter in 3 parts alternating with the sour cream in 2 parts. You will want to start and end with the flour. Beat just until combined.
Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean!
Substitute Gluten Free Bisquick for Flour in this recipe. It will turn out great and gluten free!
I haven’t tried this yet, but I bet if you added some sweetened cream cheese in with the strawberries it would be knock you over delicious!
