"From a recipe handout I got when I went picking strawberries. Moist and delicious! It taste like a strawberry cream cheese danish. It's easier than some recipes since the cream cheese is mixed into the batter and not used as a separate layer. You could also serve it as a dessert with ice cream on top like a cobbler."

"This was an enormous hit! I sent this to work with my husband and everybody raved over it. The only gripe I have with this recipe is in the instructions. I tried putting this into a 9x13 pan and found that I didn't have nearly enough batter to even cover the bottom of the pan when I split the batter in half. I tried it in an 8x8 instead, and had great success! The cake rose nicely, just over the top of the pan, but once out of the oven it settled down to be at the pan's rim. This is definitely a fantastic way to use up those gorgeous strawberries! Thanks."
"This is moist, flavorful and spot on for a great breakfast. I CAN verify that the 8x8 pan works well at 350' but takes almost an hour to cook thoroughly. I didn't have strawberries, but used cranberries that were partially pureed. I also sprinkled the top with a flavored sugar from Your Inspiration at Home, Rose Sugar. It was a mild addition to add more flavor to an already great recipe. <br/>http://www.marclewis.yourinspirationathome.com.au/"
"This is SO GOOD! I baked it in a 9 x 13, and the only change I made was more pecans (personal preference.) It could have just as easily been a dessert! Used a 16 oz container of strawberries, sliced thin. Next time I want to use more, even though it was incredibly moist as it was.... THANK YOU!! (hint: doesn't travel well unless you leave it level. Mine scooted around in the pan when we transported it on its side. Didn't affect the taste, but didn't look as pretty....Chilled it after travel and it tasted fine that way.)"
"This was a big hit, although like other reviewers mentioned, the batter is a little difficult to work with. Still, I used a 13x9 inch pan and used a knife (and my fingers) to spread the batter out. The top layer is easier to work with, since it's just dropping the batter over the berries, sort of like a cobbler. Although I didn't think it tasted like a danish, it was certainly very delicious and received raves all around. I will definitely make this again."
"Made this last night for the first time. Easy to make and tasted wonderful. Will definitely make again. Thanks for posting!"
"I made it exactly according to the recipe in a 9 by 13 pan and it was perfect. I will definitely make this again. The cream cheese in the cake made it very moist. The batter is very thick and hard to spread. As suggested, I spread the bottom half with a knife. The top half of batter I just put little gobs on the top, trying to spread them out. It did not spread out to cover the top evenly when baking but still looked and tasted great."
"I am very happy with this recipe. I used strawberries that were extra ripe. I made it the night before it was needed and the next morning, the coffee cake smelled (and tasted) so good. I added a little drizzle of a confectioners sugar glaze to the top. I will make this again."
"This is great. I was looking for a 9x13 coffee cake. I didn't even have to pull out my huge kitchen aid stand mixer. My hand mixer was sufficient. It came out really moist. And not too sweet."
