Happy Sunday everyone!!

It's a snowy day here in Minnesota! I'm enjoying the view from inside my warm house with the delicious smell of a beef roast simmering in the slow cooker.

I love days at home like this when it's chilly and snowy outside and I don't have to go anywhere.

Days like today are also great for baking, and today's recipe is a wonderful one to try.

I've been getting berries super cheap at the grocery store lately and ended up having an abundance of blueberries and strawberries.

My daughter wanted to get in the kitchen and do some baking so we decided to give this cake a try!

Each bite of the cake has some berries, which I love and the crunchy crumble on top makes this cake perfection.

I really love coffee cake for breakfast or brunch, but it's also a great dessert for any occasion, especially with all these lovely berries.

My daughter who's almost 11 loved making this cake and it was simple enough for her to take the lead and me to help out whenever she needed it.

This cake is defintely a new favorite and we will be making it again with different flavor combos!

Keep an eye out for those in a future blog post!

What is in Strawberry and Blueberry Coffee Cake?

  • Fresh blueberries: Eating this fruit daily can improve heart health. They are low in calories, packed full of antioxidants and should be refrigerated after purchasing them.
  • All purpose flour: It's a combination of hard and soft wheats. Bleached flour provides a softer texture. It's versatile and you can bake most anything with it!
  • Strawberries: The garden strawberry is common and widely grown and cultivated worldwide for their fruit. The fruit is appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness. They're an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese. Eating eight large strawberries will give you one day's serving of fruit.
  • Baking powder: It's a dry leavening agent, with a shelf life about 9-12 months. Baking powder is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods by causing bubbles in a wet mixture. Baking powder is usually made with a combination of baking soda, cream of tartar and cornstarch.
