Hi everyone! Jennifer back from Deliciously Sprinkled with an easy Christmas morning cake!

This Strawberry Jam Crumb Cake is perfect for Christmas morning. And with Christmas only two days away, this cake is super simple to make and it’s delicious. I make this cake for my family every Christmas.

I love layers in my cake, and this cake is a moist buttery cake layered with a sweet strawberry jam and topped with a cinnamon-sugar crumb topping. What could possibly be better than this? It IS the perfect coffee cake!

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
