  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 TBSP Cornstarch
  • 2 tsps. Water

Crumble Topping

  • 3 Tbsps. butter cold, cubed
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 tbsp sugar


  • 1/2 cup butter softened (1 stick)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Strawberry Filling

  • Combine Strawberries, 1/3 cup sugar, water, and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring constantly until the sauce is thick, and strawberries are soft and broken down. Set aside to cool.Crumble Topping
  • Combine all of the topping ingredients in a bowl and rub together with your fingertips until crumbly. Set Aside


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  • Grease and flour (or use Baking spray with flour) a square pan that is at least 8x8. You could use 9x9 or 10X10.
  • Cream together the Butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla.
  • 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.
  • You will spoon 2/3 of the batter into the prepared pan. Spread the cooled Strawberry mixture on the batter. It is easier to drop it by spoon.
  • Spoon the remaining batter onto the strawberries and spread evenly. Top with the streusel topping, and bake in the upper third of the oven. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean!
