Strawberry Coffee Cake

Okay, I posted this about a year ago and now it is strawberry time again!  Just thought I would remind you of this delicious recipe. 
Strawberry coffee cake is so yummy.  It can be served for breakfast or for dessert.  It would be yummy warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Original recipe and more pictures of how to make this bad boy can be found at Chickens in the Road.
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening, butter, or lard
  • 1 cup strawberries, chopped
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 ounces cream cheese or more, softened
  • 4 ounces strawberry jam or more
Place first 5 ingredients in a large bowl and cut in the shortening, butter, or lard with a pastry cutter.  

Mix in strawberries.

Add milk. Place dough on a floured surface. Sprinkle more flour on top and roll into an approximately 12 x 8 rectangle.

Spread cream cheese down the center then top with jam. Make cuts, about an inch and a half apart, all along both long sides. Criss-cross cut strips of dough over the top. Pinch ends to seal.

Transfer to a greased baking or 13 x 9 casserole pan or cookie sheet. (If you’re planning to take this somewhere, you might want to use the casserole pan.)   I roll out on parchment paper and then lift it on to my baking sheet. Bake in a 375-degree oven for 25 minutes or till nicely browned. 

Powdered Sugar Icing:
Combine 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, and enough milk (one to two teaspoons) for drizzling consistency.

Make long, lovely slices.  Note: This dough spreads out as it bakes, making one giant strawberry coffee cake, enough to feed a small army or large family.

  1. Oh, wow, what a way to die - eating a strawberry coffee cake to die for!!! This looks unbelievable. I love the glaze too. We need to have this!

  2. Jenn, this was so good!!! It was super sticky though and hard to work with, I ended up using a lot of extra flour. It still turned out incredible!!!
