Strawberry Lemon Coffee Cake

If streusel toppings aren’t your thing, try this pretty cake from The Adventure Bite. Bananas and yogurt add moistness to the cake itself, and a delicious lemon–vanilla bean cream cheese frosting tops it all off with a bit of tartness. As a coffee accompaniment or a late-night snack, this one is sure to disappear quick. Click here to get the recipe.
