Berry coffee cake (OAMC)

This coffee cake is the perfect make-ahead or OAMC treat! It freezes very well, and can be served either at room temperature or warm. Wrapped in foil, it goes from freezer to oven to table in about 30 minutes.

Berry Coffee Cake

1 c unbleached white flour
2 T sugar
1-1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/4 c butter

1 egg
1/3 c milk

1/2 c sliced berries (strawberries, raspberries, etc)
1/4 c orange marmalade

1/4 c sugar
3 T flour
1/4 c butter

Stir together well the flour through the salt. Cut in the butter until the mix is crumbly. Mix egg and milk and stir into flour mixture until just moistened. Spread in an 8×8 inch baking pan. Mix the berries and the marmalade together and spread over batter. Mix the 1/4 c sugar with the flour, and cut in the butter. Sprinkle it over top of the fruit mixture. Bake at 400 for 30 - 35 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Serve warm, serve when cool, or let it cool completely to freeze. Wrap in foil and freeze.

To reheat, put into 350 oven for 30 minutes, still in foil. Open foil for the last 10 minutes.
