    A bit more labor intensive than a typical coffee cake but the filling and topping are worth it. Make sure your butter is very soft at room temp and cream the sugar in well. It’s a lot of eggs to work in, which also should be at room temp or your batter won’t fully incorporate. This amount of batter and topping completely filled an 8 x 8 pan and rose just 1/2 inch above the edge. It took about 75 minutes to bake fully through at 350. Makes very tall slices. Compliments include “best coffee cake I’ve ever had in my life” and “best baked good I’ve had in recent memory”. The strawberry jam mixed in with a little cake batter adds this amazing extra sweetness to it all.
