Strawberry Crumb Cake

May 18, 2011

I have noticed that it is becoming strawberry season again. Woohooooooo! I love strawberries and I recently got some for $.98 a lb so I have been freezing and cooking these delicious morsels of fruit.

In my quest to make some strawberry goodness I came across this recipe that I tweaked to my liking and it actually came out pretty dang tasty. The only thing that  would have made it better… cold scoop of vanilla ice cream to top it off . (Is there anything ice cream doesn’t make better?)

First you make the cake batter and top it with the strawberries.

Then you make the delicious crumb topping and bake. It really is super easy.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries


1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cold butter
1/4 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F and lightly grease a 8 x 8 pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat the egg, milk and butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour into baking dish. Top with strawberries.
  3. For topping, combine flour and sugar in a bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in pecans and sprinkle over strawberries.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cut into squares; serve warm. And don’t forget the ice cream or whipped cream to make it extra yummy!

    That looks SO good right now! I found a local produce place that always has 1lb boxes of strawberries for $1 so we always have them handy!
