Berry Butter Struesel Cake


I promise to return to healthy recipes after the holiday. Who am I kidding? I don’t promise that at all.

I made this cake with a part of a recipe in my Doubleday cookbook for a 2 egg Butter cake. I changed it to fit my needs and my pantry because I’m out of vanilla (GASP). It’s looking good and the batter tastes great.

1 3/4 c cake flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla powder

1/2 c butter

1 c sugar

2 eggs

1/2 c milk

1/2 vanilla bean, scraped

1 c blueberries

1 c cut strawberries

Struesel:

4 tbsp cold butter

1/3 c flour

1/2 c sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla powder

Mix the milk and vanilla bean.

Sift flour, baking powder, salt, and vanilla powder. Set aside.

Cream butter. Add sugar gradually. Add eggs, beating well after each addition.

Add dry ingredients alternately with milk to the butter and egg mixture.

Pour into a greased 9 × 13 pan. Top with berries.

Make the struesel. Combine dry ingredients. Cut the butter into dry ingredients using pastry blender until mixture looks like small pebbles. Sprinkle over berries.

Bake for 45 minutes at 375 degrees.

I think it would be tasty with some vanilla ice cream or nice fresh whipped cream.
