Strawberry Coffee Cake

You won't be able to have a cup of coffee without it! You have to try this Strawberry Coffee Cake Recipe

Cake, strawberries, and coffee are a few of my favorite things. When you can bring them all together to one location…I AM THERE! This Strawberry Coffee Cake is one of my favorite, breakfast/desserts. The cake has just enough crumble, but the sweet strawberry filling adds just the right fruitiness. It basically melts in your mouth!

Cake
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Grease and flour (or use Baking spray with flour) a square pan that is at least 8x8. You could use 9x9 or 10X10.
  3. Cream together the Butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla.
  5. 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.

    I do a homemade cream cheese danish and the filling is as follows: 2-8 ounce packages of cream cheese, 3/4 cup powdered sugar, 1 egg yolk, and 1 tsp. vanilla….. and I agree with you…. that would probably be AWESOME in this recipe. I can’t wait to try them both!

    ½ cup all-purpose flour
    ½ cup butter, softened (1 stick)
    ½ tsp. salt
    3 ½ tbsp. sugar

    I don’t know if it’s just an error on my computer, but some of the numbers are appearing as squares. Can you please clarify as to the amounts? This looks AMAZING and I’m guessing it’s supposed to be “1/2″ but I want to be sure. Thanks!
