We are in the midst of the start of school when things can be a bit more hectic in our mornings. Getting used to the new schedule and the early morning hours can be brutal at first. But as the days go, they become a bit easier and the routine is suddenly back as second nature.

As we head into September the thought of baking is exciting and baking something to make these mornings more tolerable is well, a good idea in my book. This Strawberry Coffee Cake is a perfect morning cake to plop on the table and raise the moods around it. It is also a great one to serve during a brunch as it serves alot and great to make ahead.

1 ½ cups (370g) milk

1 tbsp (14g) baking powder

Slowly pour the mixture into the large bowl and combine.

If using a skillet to bake please note below. If using a 9 x 13 baking dish, make sure to either spray a non stick baking spray inside or butter the dish to prevent sticking. Pour half the mixture inside.

**Note for Skillet: If baking in a skillet I reccommend heating the skillet a bit first on the stove top or by popping it into the oven briefly while the oven preheats with a about a 1 tbsp or so of butter making sure to butter the sides of the skillet as well. Once heated, then add the batter in the same stacking method as explained in the original steps above.

FAQ for Strawberry Coffee Cake

Can I use butter in place of the coconut oil?

Yes, butter will work for this recipe and so would an olive oil.

What type of pan is recommended?

I like using my 12 inch cast iron skillet for this recipe. But a glass 9 x 13 baking dish works great too.

If you try this recipe and love it, I would love it if you would come back and give it 5 stars!
