Strawberries and Cream Coffee Cake with Vanilla Cream Cheese Glaze

Strawberries and Cream Coffee Cake with Vanilla Cream Cheese Glaze

Ingredients:
For the Cake
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (very thick Greek yogurt may be substituted, although I have not tested it)
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt, optional and to taste
  • 1 1/4 cups frozen or fresh strawberries, halved and loosely packed (if using frozen, keep them unthawed and add them frozen - thaw just enough to halve them, if necessary. Other fruit could be substituted such as blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches, nectarines)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons turbinado sugar, for sprinkling (2 tablespoons granulated sugar may be substituted)

For the Vanilla Cream Cheese Glaze
  • about 3 ounces (about 1/3 cup) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar OR about 1 cup confectioners' sugar (granulated sugar prevents glaze from getting as 'crunchy' when exposed to air, but doesn't incorporate as smoothly as confectioners' sugar)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
