Coffee Cake Ingredients

This coffee cake has fresh strawberries and chocolate chips in the batter. Plus an oat crumb topping which includes chocolate chip grahams, chocolate chips and oats.

This is one of my husband’s favorite coffee cakes of mine. I asked him if he thought it tasted like a chocolate covered strawberry and he said yes.

The cake is indeed very rich and perfect for either breakfast, afternoon tea or a simple dessert.

  • 1 10"x10" glass baking pan


Coffee Cake Batter:

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup melted cooled butter
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

Crumb Topping:

  • 3 tablespoons soft butter


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Spray a 10"x10" glass baking pan with Baker's Release spray. If you have to use a smaller pan, consider putting some of the batter into a muffin tin so it doesn't overflow. The bake time for a muffin size will be less, so watch it and use a toothpick to test when it is done.

Coffee Cake Batter:

  • Toss the strawberries and chocolate chips with flour in a mixing bowl to coat them.
  • Add the sugar, baking powder and salt and stir again.
  • Separately, mix up the cooled melted butter with the buttermilk and beaten egg.
  • Gently stir in to the dry ingredients just to blend.
  • Spread the batter in the cake pan and smooth out.

Crumb Topping:

  • Crush the grahams into crumbs and mix with remaining ingredients for the toppng until it is crumbly and evenly coated with butter.
  • Sprinkle the crumb topping over the cake batter evenly.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out without wet batter.
  • Cool in the pan then slice into 3x3 for nine servings.
  • Optional: Sprinkle top with powdered sugar before serving and/or sliced strawberries. (These two ingredients not included in nutrition info as they are optional)
