Strawberry Coffee Cake

Sunday mornings, I try to make breakfast...go a little bit fancy, giving cereal a break.  This past week, I suprised the kids & told them that we were having cake for breakfast.  They were excited!  They got even more excited when I told them that I had made Strawberry Cake for breakfast.

I don't know much about Coffee cakes, but I liked this one & the substitutions that I made.
