Strawberries and Cream Coffee Cake

Ingredients:

Cake

2 3/4 cups cake flour
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 (1/4 ounce) envelope fleischmann's fast rising yeast
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon argo baking powder
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup water
1 egg
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon spice islands 100% pure bourbon vanilla extract

Filling

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon spice islands 100% pure bourbon vanilla extract
red food coloring (optional)
3/4 cup strawberry jam
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Directions:

1 For cake: Combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside 1 cup of crumbs. Stir undissolved yeast, baking soda and baking powder into remaining crumbs. Combine sour cream and water; heat to very warm (120° to 130°F). Stir sour cream mixture, egg and extracts into flour mixture. Spread batter in greased 9 x 3-inch round OR heart shaped springform pan. Set aside while making filling.

2 For filling: Combine cream cheese, sugar, egg and extracts; beat until smooth. Optional: tint to desired shade of pink with red food coloring (about 2 to 3 drops). Pour onto prepared cake batter. Top with jam and sprinkle with reserved crumbs and almonds. Allow to rise in a warm, draft free place for about 30 minutes or until cake almost doubles in height.

3 Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 45 to 50 minutes, until golden. Cool at least 2 hours. Store cake in refrigerator.

4 Recipe Note: The light texture of this cake depends on cake flour. Do not substitute all-purpose flour.
