Strawberries and Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Strawberries and Cream Cheese Coffee Cake Recipe l

Remember all of those berries I bought? (By the way, thanks to all of you who made me feel better about my berry hoarding ways by saying you do the same thing! I no longer feel weird when I look in my fridge and see cartons of berries sitting there on a regular basis! 😉 )

Well, this strawberries and cream cheese coffee cake was the next recipe on the list to put all those berries to good use, and I can’t wait to leisurely enjoy a slice with a cup of coffee tomorrow morning!

Coffee cake is one of my favorite breakfast foods to make when I want to break from my usual routine of toast or oatmeal. And since it’s been awhile since I’ve had something other than toast or oatmeal, it was about time that I made another coffee cake!

Tender, moist cinnamon coffee cake is topped with a layer of cream cheese and chopped strawberries. And though that would be good enough as is, a light crumb topping and a cream cheese drizzle finishes off the cake making it irresistible.

While it tastes great warm, it tastes even better after it has cooled and the flavors have had a chance to blend. This makes it perfect for making the coffee cake ahead of time and serving it later in the morning or next day!

Whether you need a break from your usual breakfast routine or a special weekend breakfast, this coffee cake will both make your taste buds happy and give you a little taste of spring!
