Cinnamon and Strawberry Coffee Cake
I want to share with you a recipe for a yummy coffee cake that is only made better by putting berries on top! This is a decadent-weekend-sleep-in-lazy-morning treat.
Preheat your oven to 350. In a small bowl, mix together:
1 and 1/2 tablespoons vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
1/3 cup sugar (I use vegan, organic non-GMO sugar)
1 and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts
In a large bowl, mix together:
1 and 1/2 cups flour (I use organic Bob's Red Mill flour)
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt.
In another small bowl, mix together:
6 ounces of vegan yogurt (I used lemon flavor) and 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar.
Add 1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup vegan milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Fold the wet ingredients into the dry and mix. Pour the mixture into a pie pan, and then lay strawberry slices in a concentric circle until the top is covered. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar walnut topping over the strawberries, and bake for 35-40 minutes. Brew up a cup of your favorite tea or coffee and enjoy!
