Our recommendation is to make it with strawberry preserves (this being an easy strawberry recipe site :) BUT you can substitute with your favorite fruit preserves!



  • 1 8-ounce package of cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup softened butter or margarine
  • 1 1/4 cups all-pupose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup strawberry preserves
  • Sifted powdered sugar


  • Beat cream cheese, sugar and margarine with an electric mixer until fluffy
  • Add half of the flour, the eggs, milk, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda and salt
  • Beat for 2 minutes or until will mixed.
  • Beat in remaining flour
  • Spread the batter evenly in a greased 13x9x2-inch pan
  • Spoon 8-10 teaspoons of preserves onto the batter
  • Run a knife through the batter to spread the preserves for a marbled effect

Bake at 350° F for 30-35 minutes. Check for readiness by inserting a toothpick in the center of the cake. If it comes out clean then your cake is ready!

Cool slightly on a wire rack.

To serve, sprinkle sifted powdered sugar over the top of the cake and cut into squares. Add a fresh strawberry and a mint sprig for garnish and you're ready to go!

Makes 24 servings....but, again, don't count on leftovers. This cream cheese coffee cake recipe is just that good!
