Breakfast Recipe & Asheville Girls Vanilla Giveaway Day 3 ~ Strawberry Coffee Cake

Breakfast Recipe Week & Asheville Girls Vanilla Giveaway Day 3 ~ Strawberry Coffee Cake
I hope you're enjoying the Breakfast Recipe Week here at The Egg Basket and you're taking the opportunity to enter to win the Free Asheville Girls Vanilla Giveaway!  We're enjoying sharing with you and we can't wait to hear back how you'll like the dishes!
Today we're doing another coffee cake, it's a little more prep work than the Buttermilk Blueberry Coffee Cake on Monday but it's Oh SO Yummy & Delicious!  I made two of these yesterday morning and froze one for breakfast on a busier day when I don't have time to cook!  All of these recipes freeze well.  Some of them I freeze in individual servings so we can grab, reheat, and go on those hectic, running behind days we have so often!
Now, although I said it does take a LITTLE more prep work, it's not difficult and anyone can bake it!  It's worth the time, trust us!
Strawberry Coffee Cake
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/3 cup Wheat Germ (optional)
1/4 cup Flax Seed (optional)
1/2 cup Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 cup Cold Butter (or margarine)
1 (Farm Fresh) Egg
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla (we LOVE the Asheville Girls Vanilla)
1/2 cup Sugar
2 TBL Cornstarch
6 TBL Water
1 cup Fresh (or frozen) Strawberries
1 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
1/3 cup Whole Wheat Flour
3 TBL Brown Sugar
4 1/2 tsp Cold Butter
In a bowl, combine the flours, wheat germ, flax seed, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.  Cut in butter until the mixture becomes crumbly.  Whisk egg, milk, and vanilla (you may need up to 3/4 cup of milk if you use the flax seed and wheat germ).  Stir the wet ingredients into the crumble mixture just until moistened~ don't over stir.  Pour into a 9"x5" x3" or similar pan coated with nonstick cooking spray or oil. 
Filling~ In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch.  Stir in the water until smooth.  Add your strawberries and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, cook and stir for 1-3 minutes until it's nice and thick.  Pour your filling over your batter and cut it through with a knife to swirl.  I'm a terrible "swirler" can't you tell?
Topping~ In a small bowl, combine flour and sugar.  Cut in butter until crumbly.  Sprinkle over batter.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!

  1. I love cake, pastries, and ice cream. I love it more when those dishes contains fragrance of coffee/chocolate in them. Thank you for sharing strawberry coffee cake. I will try to make it.
