Sweet Tooth Tuesday : Strawberry Coffee Cake

"Want some Cake for Breakfast?"

That's what I asked my kids one Sunday morning.  They were super excited at the prospects of eating a dessert-like Strawberry breakfast.

I don't know much about coffee cakes, but I liked this recipe and the adaptations that I made to it.
