Strawberry Coffee Cake

I was looking for a recipe using strawberries because I bought a bunch at the Brentwood Farmer's Market, and found this one on another food blog :) It turned out great... all my roommates loved it!



Crumble Topping
1 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 stick of margarine (stick form is necessary), cold from the fridge

To make crumble topping, sift the sugar and flour together in a large bowl. Place the margarine in the center of the bowl and sprinkle a little of the sugar and flour mixture over it. Place all 10 fingers on the stick and crumble it so the margarine turns into little pea sized bits. Keep the bowl of crumbles in the fridge until you’re ready for it.

Strawberry Coffee Cake

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup margarine, melted
3 cups strawberries, sliced

Sift the first four ingredients together in a bowl and set aside. Whisk the milk, eggs, vanilla, and melted margarine together in a separate bowl. Add the mix of wet ingredients to the bowl of dry ingredients. Beat together with a handheld mixer until well incorporated.

Pour into a pre-greased 13×9 pan. Arrange the sliced strawberries on top of the batter. Sprinkle the crumble toppings. Bake at 350F for 35-45 minutes.
