Strawberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake
Strawberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake 8 ounces cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup butter, softened 3/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup milk 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 3 cups strawberries, sliced ( I use entire 16 oz. container) 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup chopped nuts Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine cream cheese, butter and sugar. Beat until light and fluffy. Stir in milk, eggs and vanilla. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to cheese mixture and mix until smooth. Spread half the batter in a greased and floured 13x9 inch baking pan. (The batter is VERY thick. It works best to put little blobs of it across the whole pan and then spread them with a knife. One reviewer says they used a 8x8 inch pan, but I haven't so I can't vouch for how it will turn out or how long you need to bake it.). Spread berries evenly over batter. Dot remaining batter over berries. Mix brown sugar and nuts; sprinkle evenly over cake. Bake 40 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
