Strawberry Coffee Cake

A week ago on a Saturday morning my brother called over the two way radio and asked if any of the rest of us had eaten breakfast yet. None of us had, so he suggested that we combine all our breakfasts and eat together. This is one of the great perks of having three households in a 10 acre area! It was a great family time.

On the spur of the moment I decided to make a strawberry coffee cake to contribute to the meal. It was something I'd had in the back of my mind for a while, and I just decided to see if I could pull it off in time. It made us a little late, and we got some ribbing for that, but it was a big hit with the family. :-)

I used the Banana Brownie recipe and made some changes using some frozen strawberries that I had thawed. (They were home frozen and were quite mushy when they were thawed out, which probably helped.)

Anyway, I thought I would share my changes here so you can try them if you like. Or maybe it till inspire you to venture your own alterations to create something "new"! :-)

Strawberry Coffee Cake

Mix together:
2/3 C. sugar
1/2 C. whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 C. frozen strawberries, thawed and mashed
1/4 C. quick oats
2 eggs lightly beaten

Pour into a greased 8x8 inch pan. Bake 20-30 minutes at 350F or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Cut and serve warm directly from pan.
