The mind-blowing texture and flavor combination actually gets better over time, so you can make this Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe ahead of time and store for stress free special occasions!
I loooove coffee cake. Not only is it acceptable to eat from morning to evening, for breakfast or dessert but it tastes even better the next day. And you are going to want to eat this Strawberry Cream Cheese Sour Cream Coffee Cake for dayssssss.
After my ridiculously delicious and wildly popular Banana Cream Cheese Stuffed Coffee Cake, I wanted to make a strawberries and cream cheese coffee cake version, because it doesn’t get much better than strawberries and cream cheese for breakfast in my book. You might say I’m slightly obsessed from my Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes, Strawberry Cream Cheese Angel Food Cake French Toast, Strawberry Cream Cheese Flatbread French Toast – I just can’t get enough.
And now its time for my latest obsession, this Strawberry Cream Cheese Stuffed Sour Cream Coffee Cake. You won’t be able to get enough. Layers of pure decadent deliciousness from the buttery, moist cake, velvety creamy cheesecake filling, juicy fresh strawberry jam, another tender crumb cake layer piled high with easy food processor Coconut Pecan Streusel and sweet and tangy, silky Lemon Glaze.
To achieve this velvety, buttery cake, I modified the sour cream coffee cake itself from my Banana Cream Cheese Stuffed Coffee Cake because it is one of my favorites of all time by replacing the bananas with butter – so you have a buttery tender crumb as opposed to a banana one. And because, buttER. I kept the 1 1/4 cups sour cream because sour cream adds moistness, richness and much more flavor than just milk, and the lactic acid in sour cream also keeps the cake fresh longer.
The sour cream not only results in a fabulously rich sour cream coffee cake but also serves double duty by adding some of the sour cream batter to your cream cheese layer to stabilize it instead of using egg and flour. This method results in an extra creamilicous cream cheese layer that is DIVINE.
The delectable fresh yet simple strawberry filling is made by cooking strawberries, sugar, lemon juice with cornstarch. You cook the strawberries until the filling is nice and thick so it won’t run away in your cake and instead stays a thick, uniform strawberry layer.
The sugary, buttery, crunchy Coconut Pecan Streusel is the perfect compliment to the melt-in-your-mouth sour cream coffee cake. Its made extra easy in the food processor or you can cut it in by hand if needed. Either way, you’re left with a mound of delicate, delectable Coconut Pecan Streusel mingling with the sweet and tangy Lemon Glaze.
You can serve this Strawberry Cream Cheese Sour Cream Coffee Cake cold, at room temperature or I like mine microwaved for 15 seconds or so as the flavors meld together beautifully.
