I love to make coffee cakes! This recipe bursts with the strawberry flavor and is scrumptious. Topped with the crunchy pecans, it's a hit every time.

Yummy!! I did something out of the ordinary for me and actually used the pecans in this. I don't like nuts so I usually omit them, but I'm glad I put them on. They gave this a nice crunchy topping.It has a nice flavor of strawberry too.
Wonderful. I used frozen strawberries and added 1 tsp cinnamon to the batter. Wonderful hit with the whole family.
The recipe was easy to follow. And the ingredients were common and on-hand. The presentation was nice and it was a good coffee cake. I just don't think it was over the top. I would definitely give it a try if you just want a simple sweet. I especially loved the pecans on top!
