Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

strawberry coffee cake

in march of this year, i baked a blueberry coffeecake and posted the recipe on this blog.  a couple of weeks ago, i tried the same recipe with strawberries, and it was equally delicious.  the texture of this coffeecake is just perfect, not too dense and not too rich.

this recipe would work well for a morning breakfast, an afternoon tea or even for a lunchbox treat.  this recipe is not sticky nor dry.  since i traditionally do not bake coffeecakes very often, i have been very impressed at the quality of the cake's outcome. i choose to sprinkle the top with powdered sugar, but even that step could be omitted if desired. 

for your next morning or mid-day event, consider the recipe as posted earlier this year.
