Strawberry Crumb Coffee Cake

June 18, 2018Teresa

I have another delightful dessert for you today. Strawberry Crumb Coffee Cake. Yum. For that matter, it’s terrific for breakfast too. It’s loaded with fresh strawberries, then it’s topped with a delicious streusel topping. Finally, it’s sprinkled with fresh strawberries on top before baking. After the cake cools, I glaze it with a powdered sugar glaze. Mouthwatering. Scrumptious. Drool-worthy. Yes, yes, yes!

I started with another one of my favorite coffee cake recipes. But instead of layering the strawberries and batter, I chose to mix most of the strawberries into the batter. I added a few on top before baking to make it pretty. This coffee cake is rich, sweet, decadent and absolutely divine!

My next door neighbor had neck surgery a few weeks ago. I took them a meal made of Amish Chicken and Noodles (which they really enjoyed). I included Fried Green Beans, Baked Pineapple, a loaf of my favorite Rapid Rise Italian Herb Bread, and this coffee cake for dessert. They loved the meal. Randy always raves over my homemade bread and Carla was wowed by this coffee cake.

When they brought back my cast-iron skillet and cookie sheet I quizzed them about everything. I always like hearing other people’s opinions about what kinds of foods they find pleasurable. They loved the whole meal including the Baked Pineapple (which is a southern comfort food). But they especially loved the Amish Chicken and Noodles, the bread and this cake.

You know some times when you begin making a recipe you don’t know what you’re going to end up with. John had brought home 2 quarts of strawberries for another recipe. I was really only going to use them for pictures, nothing else. But then I found out the day Randy was getting out of the hospital I had to think fast so I could come up with a meal for them. I had all these strawberries in the refrigerator so I figured I could use them in a dessert somehow. That’s when I decided to base the coffee cake of my Blueberry Crumb Coffee Cake. Instead of making the cake in a bundt pan, I decided to use a large cast iron skillet instead.

I loved how it turned out and so did our neighbors. If you have an abundance of strawberries on your hands, this is a terrific way to use them up. Strawberry Crumb Coffee Cake is perfect for company and holiday breakfasts. It also makes one extraordinary dessert. Just ask my neighbors. 🙂

I used these ingredients for the cake portion. I used heavy whipping cream because I didn’t have any milk on hand. But milk will also work. The cream or using half-and-half will make the cake richer.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add 1 1/2 cups of the strawberries.

Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes or until done. This is a dense cake. It may take longer to cook it completely. Make sure a toothpick inserted in center comes out totally clean. My cake actually took 1 hour 15 minutes before I felt like it was cooked through all the way.

    Oh, yum!

    Teresa, unfortunately, I don’t have a cast iron frying pan. You mentioned that you’d made a similar recipe in a bundt pan, which is a definite possibility. However, have you done any experimenting with other sizes/types pans?

    Thanks for any help you can offer!

    Best wishes,
    Mary

      Hi, Mary. Yes, you can absolutely change it up and bake it in a bundt pan (adjust baking time to 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes or longer. It’s important for a knife to be inserted in the center of the cake all the way to the bottom. When it comes out clean, only then do you stop baking the cake.) Or, you can try this is a round torte dish that’s about 12-inches in diameter. If you don’t have that, I would bake it in a 9×13″ glass baking dish. Otherwise, any smaller pans and you may find the cake overflow while baking and that’s not a good thing. 🙂 I hope you enjoy it.
