Strawberry Jam Coffee Cake.....A Breakfast Sensation!

Maine at Christmas....yes it was spectacular! Believe it or not, Texas is predicted to have a "White Christmas!" I doubt if it will be to this extent, but a girl can dream can't she?





Are you in a dilemma about what to serve for Christmas morning or Christmas Eve breakfast? I wanted to share this scrumptious coffee cake with you that will be a crowd pleaser at your breakfast buffet! It is very easy to prepare and oh....my......goodness! It is sensational!!


Strawberry Jam Coffee Cake
1 8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 t. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 (18 ounce) jar of strawberry Preserves
1 T. lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup brown sugar

Beat Cream cheese and butter at medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, beating well. Combine the eggs, milk and vanilla then add to the cream cheese mixture. Beat well. Combine the flour and next three ingredients to the cream cheese mixture and blend at low speed. Spoon half the batter into a 13" x 9"x2" baking dish. Combine preserves and lemon juice and spread over the batter. Dollop the remaining batter over strawberry mixture. Combine the pecans and brown sugar and sprinkle over the batter. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30-35 minutes.
