How to Make Strawberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. In a 2-quart pan over medium heat, bring strawberries and sugar to a boil. Lower heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. In a small bowl, blend cornstarch and 2 teaspoons water. Add to berry mixture; stir until it simmers and thickens, about 1 minute. Let cool to room temperature.
    In a bowl, mix flour and 3/4 cup sugar. Add butter to flour mixture. Cut in with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 1/2 cup; pour remaining into a large bowl. Stir in baking powder, baking soda, salt, and lemon or orange peel.
    In another bowl, mix yogurt, vanilla, and 1 egg until blended; stir into flour-baking powder mixture until well mixed. Spread batter in a buttered 9-inch round cake pan with a removable rim.
    In a bowl using same bowl, beat with an electric mixer on high speed cream cheese, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, remaining egg, and lemon or orange juice until smooth. Spread over batter in pan, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Gently spread berry mixture over cream cheese mixture, leaving some visible. Stir almonds into reserved flour mixture and sprinkle over cake.
    Bake in a 350° oven until center of cake top is golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool on a rack for 15 minutes, then remove pan rim. Serve warm.
