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.

    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!
