Strawberry Coffeecake

Strawberry Coffeecake // take a megabite

This coffeecake has nutmeg in it making it taste like a donut. And it can count as a breakfast, mid-afternoon snack, or even a first dinner. It calls for strawberry jam, and so I whipped up my favorite strawberry freezer jam with a vanilla bean for good measure. And, I have to say, that this stuff was super hard to photograph… solely because I wanted to eat it so badly! I gobbled up two slices in a row, and loved every second.

And did you know, this is my first yeast coffeecake! I want to experiment with more now! It has minimal rise time and maximum deliciousness. I love that it has coconut in the crumb topping, too. It adds just a bit more tasty texture. So give it a whirl! Use your favorite jam, preserves, jelly all up in this. I have a feeling they’d all be dreamy. In my heart I’d like to put chocolate chips in it… but what does my heart know?

You can find the recipe on the Red Star Yeast website right HERE. You can also follow these lovely folks on Facebook and Twitter for more recipes like this one.
