Strawberry Shortcake Coffee Cake

 

 

 

It's a little gloomy and lightly raining this morning, so baking something sweet for breakfast, to enjoy with my coffee, seemed like a wonderful idea. It's not strawberry season yet, but the strawberries I have been finding in the grocery store have been looking and tasting a lot better lately. I even found some organic strawberries last week, that looked and tasted like they were freshly picked.

This recipe was very easy and used a generous amount of berries. As always, to keep things a little healthier, I used Truvia as a substitute for the sugar in the recipe. The flavors in this cake are bright and fresh and made an ordinary Wednesday morning a little more special. Strawberry Shortcake for breakfast - I say yes please :-)

 

Strawberry Shortcake Coffee Cake

 

1 cup flour

1/2 cup sugar (I used Truvia equivilent)

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

1 tsp vanilla

2 T melted butter

2 cups sliced strawberries

For topping: 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar (Truvia equivilent), 1/4 cup cold butter

 

Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another medium mixing bowl add egg, milk and melted butter. Stir until well blended. Add dry ingredients to this mixture. Stir until moist. Pour into a 8 inch baking pan, sprayed with cooking spray. Place sliced strawberries on top. Mix topping ingredients until crumbly, then sprinkle over the strawberries. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
