Strawberry Coffee Cake

It's strawberry season and the berries are looking gorgeous this year.  I picked up a couple of boxes on sale so I've been busy using them and eating some just as they are.




Strawberry Coffee Cake

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 large eggs
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 cups strawberries, sliced in half

Mix together the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.  In a small bowl, mix together the eggs and butter and add into the dry mixture.  Stir until the dry ingredients are incorporated.  Pour into a greased 9" springform pan.  Top with sliced strawberries in a circular pattern.  

Topping

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces

Blend together with a pastry blender or your fingers.  Sprinkle over the strawberries.  Bake for 45 minutes at 350 or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow to cool slightly in pan before releasing it and serving.
