  • Summary

    This is my new favorite coffee cake. The trifecta of sour cream, buttermilk, and oil guarantees a moist, rich, and tender cake. It's so fast and easy, and all but the last two ingredients are combined all at once to a mixing bowl; it doesn't get any easier. Sweet juicy strawberries are found in every bite, and the cream cheese glaze is the perfect tangy complement to the creamy, sweet cake.

    Ingredients

    • For the Cake1 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 Glazeabout 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
