Strawberry Coffee Cake
- 2 whole eggs
- 1 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour*
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 pound strawberries, hulled and diced
- 2 tablespoons Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease or line a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper.
- Using an electric mixer beat eggs and 1 cup sugar together on medium high until thick and light in color; this will take a couple of minutes.
- Add in vegetable oil, sour cream, and vanilla. Mix until blended.
- In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Add flour mixture into mixer in batches until it is just incorporated. Fold in about two-thirds of the diced strawberries.
- Pour batter into prepared pan. Top with the remaining berries. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sugar evenly over top.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes until a tester comes out clean. Remove and let cool before slicing.
