Strawberry Coffee Cake
Another good coffee cake that we are baking at The Home Bakers ( THB ), Strawberry Coffee Cake. Besides layering the strawberries in between the cake, the cake itself is made up of mixture of cream cheese and butter, giving it a mild cheesy taste, it is moist and i would say this is a quite delicious cake to eat. I didnt toss the sliced strawberries with flour before mixing it into the batter, could it be the reason why most of my strawberries got sunk to the bottom of the cake? Anyway, i know that's not really important, i have been telling my blogger friends sometimes 'hey, as long as it tasted good, doesnt matter' so i shldnt be complaining so much..just that if those berries could have been evenly spread, it will look more appealing. What's on the topping are some sugar and nuts mixed together but i dont know why my sugar topping didnt melt, it looks like pieces of sugar crust on top of the cake . How come?
I've already took a peek at the strawberry cakes made by the rest of the members, some use blueberries, i;m sure it is delicious as well and the berries didnt really sink to the bottom unlike mine. You can look at the group baking here. This round, Alice from ILoveICookIBake has picked this cake to bake, you can look at her blueberry cake which she has baked in a cupcake form, very pretty, you can get the recipe there. I've made 1/3 recipe in a 7 inch round pan.
