Strawberry Coffee Cake

1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar (I use coconut)
1 large egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sour cream, at room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups strawberries, diced or sliced

Crumb Topping

3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled


Strawberry Coffee Cake

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray an 8×8 pan with non-stick cooking spray
  • Clean and dice 1 1/2 cups of strawberries
  • In a large glass mixing bowl, mix together butter and sugar with a hand mixer for 2-3 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Add in the room temperature egg and mix until combined.
  • Next, slowly add in flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda and mix on low until just combined. Lastly, add in sour cream and vanilla extract and stir with a spoon until just mixed, being careful not to over mix.
  • Pour the cake batter evenly into the 8×8 pan and top with clean, diced strawberries. Set aside.

Streusel Crumb Topping

  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter and let cool while preparing other ingredients. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugars, salt, and cinnamon until mixed.
  • Once cooled, add melted butter into the flour mixture and stir together until a crumb mixture forms.
  • Sprinkle crumb topping over the strawberries and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Once baked, let cool for 15-20 minutes before serving.


Store any leftover cake in an airtight container in the refrigerator, and re-heat in the microwave.
