Strawberry Coffee Cake Crumble

I love sweets. I am however missing them right now, but that isn’t stopping my husband from whipping up some delicious recipes in the kitchen. This week, he made a Strawberry Coffee Cake Crumble.

I am a huge fan of coffee cakes. I love having them with a cup of tea mid-morning or after dinner as a dessert. They are really delicious and easy to make. My husband had the idea to add some fresh strawberries to the cake, and although I was a bit hesitant, however, it turned out fantastic. Moist, and tasty. I was able to try a small piece and when it didn’t affect my gestational diabetes numbers – I was able to enjoy a couple of small pieces with a jam-packed protein filled dinner, and my belly was happy.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 tablespoons baking soda
  • 1 1/4 sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Two eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 pint of strawberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a bundt cake pan very well.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda in a large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve about 3/4 butter crumbs.
  3. Stir buttermilk, strawberries and eggs into remaining crumbs until batter is just combined.
  4. Sprinkle reserved butter crumbs evenly in cake pan.
  5. Add cake batter and spread evenly.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean, about 30 – 35 mins.
  7. Let cake thoroughly cool before running a rubber spatula around the middle and sides.
  8. Flip, pull, drizzle your favourite icing over the top, cut and eat! Mmm. So delicious!

A few of my kids even enjoyed a few slices of this delicious cake. Although, my husband and I wanted to keep it to ourselves as it didn’t make my blood sugar levels skyrocket – so it was nice to have a little treat to eat that I enjoyed.

You can top this cake with any icing you wish or just leave it without icing. It’s perfect both ways. How delicious does that strawberry look inside? I love being able to use fresh fruit in recipes, and it was the star of the dish – it was my absolute favourite part! So sweet, and delicious.

Yum, Yum, Yum. This cake may take over as my favourite. It’s light, moist and full of flavour and with a cup of tea – it does the trick!
