How to make Strawberry Streusel Cake

To make this cake, start by preheating your oven and preparing your pan. Next, mix together the streusel topping, which is made with brown sugar, flour, salt, and cinnamon. Once the mixture is crumbly, set it aside and move on to the strawberry filling.

For the strawberry filling, simply cut up some fresh strawberries and toss them with sugar, lemon zest, and cornstarch. This mixture will help keep the strawberries juicy and prevent them from becoming too watery during baking.

Next, it’s time to prepare the cake batter. Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Then, in a larger mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar before adding in eggs, sour cream, and vanilla extract. Gradually mix in the flour mixture until everything is well combined.

Pour the batter into your prepared pan, and top with the strawberry filling and streusel topping. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. If the streusel is browning too quickly, simply cover the pan with aluminum foil and continue baking.

Once the cake is done, let it cool on a wire rack for at least 20 minutes before serving. You can even dust it with powdered sugar for a little extra sweetness. Serve this delicious Strawberry Streusel Cake warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the perfect dessert.
