Strawberry Coffee Cake

Prep time: 30 minutes. Baking time: 30 minutes. Makes 9 servings.

Ingredients:

For Cake:

  • 1 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Sucralose (Splenda)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh sliced strawberries

For Topping:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar substitute blend (Splenda Brown for Baking)
  • 1/4 cup cold butter cut into small chunks
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the cake dry ingredients: flour, sugar, sucralose, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine cake wet ingredients: egg, milk and oil. Blend the wet ingredients well and add to dry ingredients. Stir just enough to moisten all ingredients. Pour into a greased 8 inch square baking dish. Top the batter with strawberries, laid out evenly.
  2. In a bowl, combine sugar and flour. Cut butter into the mixture until crumbly. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle evenly over the batter and strawberries.
  3. Bake at 375ºF for 30 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting into 9 squares and serve.

As a dessert, a little ice cream or whipped cream with some additional strawberry slices wouldn’t be unwelcome
