In the springtime, I usually have no problem sticking to smaller portions… except when it comes to a coffee cake with fresh fruit! That buttery-sweet streusel, juicy berries and crumbly, soft muffin are enough to make my mouth water. So, since I think we can all agree ’tis the season to not be slicing ourselves a BIG ‘OLE slab of cake… I made everyone’s brunch favorite bite-sized.

But, these beautiful treats don’t have to stop with brunch! Hungry for a midday snack? Want something sweet with lunch? Need a dessert for guests? These make the perfect little cakes served on a pretty plate with vanilla ice cream, or freshly whipped cream.

I may or may not have baked these three times in the past two weeks. All in the name of the best recipe for you guys. And more coffee cake for my face.

These mini coffee cakes are so fun to make, and only require wholesome ingredients like butter, sugar, flour, egg and vanilla. Plus, the best strawberries you can find!

Simply mix up your dough and scoop 1 Tbsp. each into the cups of a 12-cup muffin tin. It may not look like much batter, but these babies really rise! Top with chopped strawberries and sprinkle on your flour-butter-sugar (♥) streusel. Pop in your preheated oven for about 20 minutes, then remove and try to avoid picking off all the sizzling-hot buttery streusel bits. Savor the strawberry goodness with your morning coffee, as a midday snack, or after dinner treat.

You’re gonna love these!
