Taste of Spring - Strawberry Coffee Cake
Needing a sweet treat for an afternoon with friends, I found this recipe on Allrecipe.com (one of my most favorite food sites). It was perfect! I added a touch of lime and vanilla and of course more strawberries. Hope you try it out! Will be trying it in the winter with frozen strawberries.
