Tasty Tuesday: Strawberry coffee cake

As always, giving a shout out to my girl Cassie for creating Tasty Tuesdays :)

While the family was visiting last week, I wanted to give them a really great breakfast to welcome them to Texas. They flew in late Wednesday, so I knew I could take advantage of a late wake up to put together something yummy. I had no real plans in place, but wanted to bake up a coffee cake of some sort to go with the scrambled eggs and bacon I was making. I searched through a bunch of recipes, and ended up throwing this together with what I had on hand, and it was well received! The cake was moist and slightly sweet, while the strawberries were bursting with flavor and gave a juicy touch to a dish that can often dry out. The topping was crunchy and deliciously buttery. It actually took just a moment to throw together, and baked while I put together the rest of the meal. Definitely bookmark this for your next lazy Saturday morning, or when you want to impress guests at brunch. 
Sorry for the bad photo! I put this on the table and it was gone quicker than I could snap a nice photo!
Strawberry Coffee Cake
Ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk {I had vanilla soy milk on hand, so that's what I used}
1 egg
2 tbsp melted butter
1 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
Topping
1/4 cup old fashioned oats
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. 
  3. Add milk, egg, and butter. Beat for 2 minutes. 
  4. Fold in chopped strawberries, then pour into a greased 9 inch pie pan or 8x8 square pan. 
  5. Combine remaining flour, oats, and sugar. Cut in chilled butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Spoon evenly onto the batter.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
  7. Serve hot and let everyone pat you on the back for a great recipe!
