Strawberry Lemon Cake

I have a confession to make….I kind of hate coffee cakes. I know, I know, who hates coffee cakes? But it’s true. I find them to be far too dry more of the time. But this cake guys….it’s my world right now.

We partnered up with Nancy’s Yogurt as part of our ongoing collaboration and their Organic Whole Milk Yogurt lends the most delicious tender crumb to this cake. It’s paired with mashed banana and the two of them come together to be a fantastic texture.

I love that all the ingredients are easy to keep on hand to whip this up anytime you have extra banana’s you need to put to use before they go bad.

Topping it with this cream cheese glaze that we laced with fragrant vanilla beans and finishing it with crunchy almonds for the perfect finish.

We tried cooking it with the strawberries inside and ultimately decided that it’s best with them served alongside instead of cooked internally. Adding them to the actual cake causes them to break down pretty quickly and the cake didn’t hold as well.

Beautiful. Kevin and the boys decided that this cake should always be in our house for morning coffee breaks and late night snacking and I have to say, I agree!

It also makes such a great piece to bring to a brunch or potluck, and would be such a gorgeous cake to serve at a baby or wedding shower!
