What do you need to make Strawberry Coffee Cake?
  • flour
  • sugar
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • milk
  • 1 egg
  • strawberries
  • butter
  • shredded coconut

The crumb topping can be made with or without the shredded coconut, so if you don't have any on hand, don't worry about it. Still tastes delicious. Trust me when I tell you it'll be gobbled up in no time.

1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 1/2 cups fresh sliced strawberries

Crumb Topping
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
1/2 cup shredded coconut

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour an 9-inch baking pan. In a bowl, combine the 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir to blend thoroughly. In a mixing bowl, whisk the milk with the egg and melted butter. Add the dry mixture and beat for 2 minutes.

Spoon the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread evenly. Top the batter with the sliced strawberries. Combine 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup sugar; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add shredded coconut and mix in. Sprinkle the crumb topping mixture over the strawberries.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the cake.
