Sassy Strawberry Streusel Cake

There is something kinda badass about strawberries, don't you think? You can put them in anything, on anything or with virtually anything and they're still amazing. But don't think these strawberries are bland or unoriginal, they're ever changing in a world of tantalizing taste bud delights. Strawberries remind me of perfect summer days with a big bowl of fresh whipped cream. They also remind me of Disney World, with a cute little chocolate Mickey Mouse tuxedo. The other day I decided to whip up this super easy and sassy strawberry streusel cake! 

Preheat the oven to 175 C/350 F. Whip together the butter, sugar, and yoghurt until pale and fluffy. Add in the eggs 1 at a time. Add vanilla and almond meal. Toss strawberries with 2 tbsp flour. Beat flour and milk into batter alternating, but end with the flour. Add orange juice and zest. Gently fold strawberries into batter until combined. Pour into 2 loaf pans or one cake pan. 

In a bowl with an electric mixer, beat together oats, brown sugar, butter, and almond meal until combined and crumble-y. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the cake. 

Bake cake for approximately an hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

This cake is pretty slutty because you can use and abuse her to fit your needs. (Was that rude? Well this cake isn't I promise.) If you don't have any yoghurt, use 1 cup butter. If you only have 1 kind of sugar use 1/2 of all of it. If you don't have any almond meal, just use flour. If you don't have strawberries or oranges, maybe try blueberry and lemon (yum. that would be soo good). Whip her up and enjoy!
