Strawberry Streusel Bundt Cake – A Decadent Coffee Cake

Share this! Your friends will love it...

It is no secret that I love to bake. It is no secret that I love candy. So therefore it should be no big surprise when I combine the two. It’s fun to use decorative candies to add a special touch to cupcakes, cookies, and cakes like this Strawberry Streusel Bundt Cake. They can add flavor, color and other fun design elements.  Take this streusel bundt cake for example; soon it will be all about the red, white and blue so I used red candy crumbles to decorate the top but it could just as easily be decorated with green candies for St. Patrick’s Day.

The base cake is from Pure Vanilla but I made up the filling and the topping is ganache.

For the Streusel:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 TBS cinnamon
pinch of salt

1/3 cup strawberry jam (make sure it is jam, not jelly)

For the Ganache:
1/4 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup semi sweet chips
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Crushed red or blue sweet candies

Preheat oven to 325°
Butter and flour a 12 cup bundt pan.
Make the streusel: mix the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add the melted butter and mix well. Set aside

Make the cake:

Whisk together the cake flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
Add the chopped chocolate rounds and toss them to coat.
In a stand mixer with the paddle attached beat the butter and vanilla on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the sugar and beat for about two minutes. Add the eggs and yolks one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Reduce speed to low and add flour and buttermilk in alternating additions, beginning and ending with the flour. Be careful to not overmix.
Give the batter a couple of stirs to make sure everything has been incorporated.

Add about a third of the batter to the prepared bundt pan and level it out.
Sprinkle half of the streusel mixture over the batter.

Drop the jam in small dollops over the streusel.

Sprinkle the remaining streusel on top of the jam.
Add the remaining cake batter to the pan. Smooth the batter.
Bake in the preheated oven for 60 – 70 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.


Let the cake cool for 10 minutes and then remove it from the pan to cool completely on a wire rack.

Make the ganache:

Add the chips to a small bowl.
Add the cream, vanilla and salt to a small saucepan. Bring just to a boil but do not boil.
Pour the hot cream over the chips and let sit for about a minute.
Stir the mixture until you have a smooth sauce.
Drizzle the ganache over the cake. There will be extra – it tastes really good.

Isn’t it a pretty cake to take to a party? It’s not that hard to make and I think it will stand out from the crowd. It’s a moist and delicious treat too!

How Was the Strawberry Streusel Bundt Cake?

You can see how lovely the strip of streusel and jam are and they add a nice touch of sweet/tart to the cake. At least my homemade strawberry jam is a bit sweet/tart. The bits of chocolate throughout the cake are a delight and  the rich chocolate ganache is the perfect finish..
