Helpful Tips for Making Strawberry Coffee Cake

  • A whisk can be used in place of a flour sifter.
  • Try to get the chunks of butter as small as you can, but the batter will be quite dry and crumbly. This is normal for coffee cake.
  • Fresh strawberries are best, but frozen strawberries may also be used.

Variations and Substitutes

  • Add a teaspoon of vanilla for a bit more sweetness.
  • Replace the strawberries with blueberries.
  • Instead of just strawberries, use a mixture of blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries.

Final Thoughts on Strawberry Coffee Cake

Before I found this recipe, I had not thought about using berries in coffee cake. I always think about cinnamon and brown sugar instead, but it can be so much more than that! Coffee cake has endless possibilities, really. Have you had any other flavors besides the traditional cinnamon and brown sugar?
