Easter is less than a week away! How’s your menu coming? I know a lot of you probably have had your menu planned for weeks.
But for those of you who haven’t and are still in need of an easy recipe to round out your menu, I have just the easy coffee cake recipe. Plus, even your gluten free friends and family can enjoy it!
This gluten free strawberry lemon poppy seed coffee cake is the perfect addition to Easter brunch!
This time of year I find myself eating as many berries as I can get my hands on. Maybe it’s my inner self longing for all of the fresh produce that warm weather brings, but there’s something about berries and spring that make me want to bake with them as often as possible.
So, making a strawberry coffee cake seemed like the logical thing to do for Easter. Adding in the fresh, citrusy flavor of lemon seemed like an even better decision!
The result was a tender lemon cake that is bursting with fresh strawberries and lemon zest. Sitting on top of the cake is a thick layer of crunchy, cinnamon streusel.
Oats, almond flour, and sliced almonds get mixed with a bit of brown sugar and cinnamon to create ample coverage of the cake. No light sprinkling of streusel here!
For an extra bit of flavor, a sweet lemon glaze is drizzled over the top right before serving. This coffee cake is a keeper and just what your Easter brunch menu needs!
**Make sure that you strawberries are mostly dry after washing them as the extra liquid from the strawberries can make this coffee cake turn out somewhat soggy in texture. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
