STRAWBERRY LEMON BREAKFAST CAKE RECIPE
A great day needs to begin with a delicious breakfast! And what better then with this strawberry lemon breakfast cake. It’s tasty amazing, but what better is how easy it is to make. You can either make it the morning of or the night before and eat it cold the next morning or warm it up a bit, whatever you’d like, either way tastes great. It’s sweet but we don’t find it overly sweet.
Mouth watering yet, the easy recipe is below…
½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
zest from 1 large lemon
3/4 cup + 3 tablespoons sugar(use 1 tablespoon for dusting on top)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 cups chopped fresh strawberries or berry of choice
½ cup buttermilk
1. Preheat oven to 350º. Cream butter with lemon zest and the sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Meanwhile, toss the berries with ¼ cup of flour, then whisk together the remaining flour, baking powder and salt.
3. Add the flour mixture to the batter a little at a time, alternating with the buttermilk. Fold in the berries.
4. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan (or something similar) with butter or coat with non-stick spray. Spread batter into pan. Sprinkle batter with remaining tablespoon of sugar. Bake for 45-50 minutes until done, check with toothpick. Let cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
