Having a Garage Sale this week and had the itch for coffee cake and a hot cup of coffee during the wee hours of the morning. This coffee cake has strawberries and peaches in it but you can put whatever you have on hand. The next batch I am going to add more fruit than what the original recipe calls for.
Never made coffee cake before so this was my first. My mom was telling me the other day that my brother made her Strawberry Coffee cake, so I got a little jealous, but that jealousy produced a very happy outcome I think! Thanks so much Mom
Hope to see you all at my garage sale, your invited
