As I mentioned last week when I posted the recipe for Lemon Strawberry Tart, we had a great strawberry harvest. When we moved on to our little piece of paradise our goal was to grow most of our own food. I freeze strawberries so that we have them all year ’round to enjoy. Now I hope that when the blackberries come in that harvest will be just as bountiful.

How Was the Strawberry Coffee Cake?

This is a really lovely coffee cake. It’s light and not too sweet. The strawberries surprise with a bit of sweet/tart flavor.

To me it almost tastes like it was made with a bit of cornmeal but as you can read in the ingredient list there is none used. While it’s called a coffee cake it is a delightful treat at any time of day. I adapted this recipe from one in The Perfect Cake by America’s Test Kitchen.
