Berry Coffee Cake

Adapted from Sister's Cafe

I had to put together a quick dessert for a dinner party and with all the summer berries out right now, this was the perfect recipe. The cake was moist and the berries made it pretty and gave it enough tang to keep it interesting.

2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
2 cups fresh or frozen berries

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup butter

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9x9x2 inch baking pan, set aside. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.

In another bowl, beat butter (softened) with sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, beat well. Then add flour mixture and milk alternately to butter/sugar mix, beating until smooth after each addition.

Spoon batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with berries. In another bowl, combine topping ingredients, cutting in the butter mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping over berries and bake for 50-60 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
