Strawberry Coffee Cake

Image

I went to the fruit market today and picked up some fresh strawberry i was really excited to make this lovely strawberry coffee cake, I had it a few days back at a friends place and absolutely fell in love with it i have been craving for it ever since. The cake is irresistibly delicious it is so soft and buttery it just melts in your mouth. Fresh juicy strawberries make it so flavourful and  crowned with an incredible crumb topping the cake is a hit. I left it on the kitchen counter for my resident food  critics to give their verdict (not sweet enough, too rich……you get the gist) instead i came down to find nothing but an empty cake stand and a trail of crumbs.
