Strawberry Buckle

Last weekend hubby and I went to Cedarburg Wisconsin's annual Strawberry Fest.  It was a nice Wisconsin summer day...

We enjoyed walking around, looking at all the artisan stands and enjoying the yummy food including lots of strawberry goodness like strawberry wine and strawberry shortcake!

I couldn't resist the fried Wisconsin cheese curds either...

At the end of the day I picked up a pint of fresh strawberries and headed home to find a fun new recipe to try that included them.

I decided to try a Strawberry Buckle which is basically a coffee cake with strawberries in it.  YUM!  You can mix up the fruit too.  I really want to try it with blueberries or apples.  The recipe is so simple and the finished buckle was deee-licious!  Tastes just like a coffee cake with strawberry jam in it.  Here it is...
