Berry Good Breakfast

It seems as if there are a number of recipes floating around that I would call "election fare". I decided to post something that comes from Taste of Home Best Holiday Recipes. This is something you could make and have before you go out and vote. If you prefer, you could make it Wednesday morning after you have been up all night watching election results. I absolutely love strawberries, so I think this recipe is just perfect.

Strawberry Coffee Cake:

1 Tbsp. corn starch
1 10oz. pkg. frozen, sweetened, sliced strawberries
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. almond extract
2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup cold butter
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg, lightly beaten

In a large saucepan, combine corn starch and strawberries until blended. Bring to a boil over medium heat until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in cinnamon and almond extract. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour and sugar. Cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly. Set aside 1/2 cup for topping. Add baking powder, baking soda, and salt to remaining flour mixture. Stir in buttermilk and egg until moistened. Spread 1 1/2 cups batter into a greased square baking dish. Carefully spread with strawberry mixture. Drop remaining batter over strawberry mixture. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.
