Recipe Box, Fresh Strawberry White Chocolate Coffeecake

One day last week I wanted to make a breakfast treat for the littles, and did a quick search on Pinterest and found French Strawberry Cake from Foodtastic Mom

This delightful cake can be made quickly with things from your pantry and fridge, plus a pint of fresh strawberries

The sugar topping gives it a wonderful texture

I added some white chocolate chips and almond emulsion to the recipe

The batter mixes up easily

Sour cream adds extra moisture

Once the batter is mixed, fold in the berries

A springform pan made it easy to serve

The white chocolate chips went on the top

and were pressed down into the batter

Sugar is sprinkled all over the top

The cake is moist and crumbly, with layers of texture

The cake is best eaten within 1-2 days

Refrigerate leftovers as the moisture of the strawberries can cause it to get soggy
