Vegan Strawberry Coffee Cake

July 25, 2015 Breakfast, Recipes, Sweets

In one word? Scrumptious.

The strawberries are tart, the crust is soft and warm, and the topping is sugary and earthy. They are very dense, so it doesn’t take too much to make the world a happy place for you. Personally, I enjoy mine with hot cocoa. I have never really had a taste for coffee, but I will bake coffee cake all day long if it gives me an excuse to drink more hot chocolate.

For the “crust”
  1. ♥ 1 1/3 cups almond milk
  2. ♥ 1/2 cup Earth Balance butter or coconut oil, melted
  3. ♥ 1/3 cup apple sauce
  4. ♥ 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  5. ♥ 1 tsp. almond extract
  6. ♥ 2 2/3 cups flour of choice (all-purpose used in pictures)
  7. ♥ 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  8. ♥ 2 tsp. baking powder
  9. ♥ 1 tsp. cinnamon
  10. ♥ 16 oz. box strawberries, halved
For the topping
  1. ♥ 1/2 cup melted butter or oil
  2. ♥ 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  3. ♥ 1/2 cup flour of choice
  1. Whisk together milk, butter, apple sauce, and extracts.
  2. Whisk in flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix well.
  3. Pour the thick, sticky mixture into a baking pan, and pull the dough to the sides and corners.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 and arrange the halved strawberries on the top of the crust.
  5. Mix together the melted topping of melted butter, coconut sugar, and flour. Spoon on top of the strawberries.
  6. Pop the pan into the oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes. I like mine a bit softer, so I only bake for about 30 minutes.
  7. Let them sit to cool for about 20-25 minutes, and dig in!
  8. Take a picture and share your discoveries on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter!

  • This recipe is super simple, and it is my go-to for breakfast.

I loved that idea,…
  • This recipe is so so simple, and I love it. I love the feeling of eating something delicious that I know is good for me. It almost feels naughty to eat delicious food, even when I now it's filled with nutritional value. The fear of eating good food always appears for me…
