Strawberry Coffee Cake Dessert Recipe

  • 1 Cup (250 mL) All-Purpose Flour
  • 2/3 Cup (150 mL) Granulated White ("Table") Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons (45 mL) Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon (15 mL) Butter
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Teaspoon (5 mL) Vanilla Extract
  • 1/3 Cup (75 mL) Strawberry Syrup
  • 1 Teaspoon (5 mL) Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon (2 mL) Salt
  • 3 Tablespoons (45 mL) 2% (Reduced Fat) Milk

If you'd like to make your own strawberry syrup, you can use the StrawberriesForStrawberryLovers.Com recipe for it by clicking here (the preceding link will open this page in a new window).

The first thing to do is to melt the butter, then place it in a mixing bowl along with the egg, the vegetable oil, the vanilla extract and the milk. Mix these together thoroughly, then stir in the salt, the baking powder, and the sugar. The final step in making this batter is to add the flour. Add the flour a little at a time until all of it has been mixed in.

To give the cake it's striped, marbled look, divide the batter into two equal parts. Add the strawberry syrup to one of the batter parts and mix it in completely. Next, pour the plain batter and strawberry batter alternately into a pre-oiled bread pan to bake. You can increase the amount of striping by increasing the number of times you alternate the batters as you add them to the pan, as well as by gently moving a butter knife or thin-bladed spatula through the batter.

Place another pan filled 3/4 full of water on to the lowest shelf of the oven, and pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Place the pan with the batter on to the second lowest shelf of the oven, being careful not to shake it too much (you don't want to mess up the marbling of the batter). Bake the cake for 30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of it comes out clean.

After trying this recipe, you may want to try the very similar StrawberriesForStrawberryLovers.Com recipe for strawberry bread and muffins, which you can see here (clicking on the preceding link will open this page in a new window).

Also, a nice twist on this strawberry coffee cake recipe is to make it into a strawberry rhubarb coffee cake recipe by simply substituting 2 tablespoons (30 mL) of the strawberry syrup with the same amount of very finely chopped rhubarb (to maintain the contrast of the cake's striping, you may want to add a drop of red food coloring, too).
