Strawberry Streusel Slices | © 2019 |

It's a spring coffee cake with three delicious layers. On the bottom is a spelt pastry made with Quark (German fresh cheese) and olive oil, sweetened with erythritol (a sugar alcohol that has zero glycemic index and it does not increase the blood sugars), followed by a layer of fresh strawberries, then it's finished with a buttery crunchy streusel. This is an easy and delicious way to enjoy strawberry season.

Topping & StreuselCrust with German Quark and Olive Oil
  • 100 g Refined spelt flour
  • 50 g Erythritol
  • Pinch of black salt
  • 80 g Unsalted butter, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 600 g Fresh strawberries, halved
  • 150 g Quark (German fresh cheese)
  • 70 ml Milk
  • 75 ml Mild olive oil
  • 60 g Erythritol
  • Pinch of black salt
  • 280 g Refined spelt flour
  • 12 g Baking powder
  • 3 / 9 g Strawberry flavoured tea bags
  • 30 g Almond meal
  1. Place spelt, erythritol and salt for the streusel together in a mixing bowl. Add in chopped butter and vanilla extract. Rub everything together until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Place all the ingredients for the crust, except 30 grams of almond meal, in a mixing bowl. Beat with a handheld mixer until a smooth dough forms. Press the dough evenly into a 22x26x4cm baking pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle the reserved almond meal over.
  3. Gently press the halved strawberries into the crust and top with the prepared streusel.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Bake the bar in the middle of hot oven for 40 minutes until nicely golden. Remove and turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing into bars. | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

I do love coffee cakes, but I think I’ve never incorporated berries in them. That sounds and looks absolutely fabulous!

Catherine 22/5/19 03:21

Dear Angie, How delicious! The strawberries are so beautiful now. I have been enjoying them but this is a perfect strawberry treat with a delicious cup of coffee. Take care my dear friend. xoxo Catherine

Alida@mylittleitaliankitchen 22/5/19 11:16

I really love your cake Angie. I use spelt all the time and I really fancy trying this. I am not sure I can find Quark cheese in the UK. Can I use ricotta instead, do you think it will work? It looks delicious!

Strawberries must be plentiful right now! I just made strawberries cookies today :) Nothing as professional and sophisticated like your bakes but using a flour mix (with spelt flour inside) and FRESH strawberries.

Big Rigs 'n Lil' Cookies 2/6/19 18:09

What a delicious bar to enjoy some beautiful strawberries in! I'm not familiar with Quark, I'll have to research and see if it's available near me.

This looks perfectly delightful Angie! Strawberries are so wonderful right now! Help me understand what Erythritol is/are?

Angie's Recipes 8/6/19 07:22

@Anonymous Hallo Roz, erythritol is a sugar alcohol and a calorie free sweetener.

grace 8/6/19 18:23

leave it to you to make a strawberry crisp extra nutritious and delicious! :)

Paula Montenegro 15/6/19 14:19

This is a very interesting twist with the cheese! Thanks for the idea Angie.
