Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake
I love raspberries and Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake is phenomenal! While raspberries aren’t the sweetest berry around they are delightful to eat. Nowadays you can get them almost any time of the year–not just in the summer. This delightful coffeecake is made with layers of fresh raspberries and has an almond streusel filling that’s layered as well. This coffeecake is heavenly.
I have several versions of this amazing coffeecake and each one is tantalizing and so mouthwatering. Blueberry, Strawberry, Peaches ‘n Cream, Fresh Cherry are some of my favorites. But this is one of those coffeecakes that can be made with just about any kind of fruit. I will say you must use your largest bundt pan for this recipe. You also may want to put a pan underneath the cake pan while cooking to catch any drips while baking.
Back in February I was coordinating meals for several homes in our church who were hosting youth for our Disciple Now Weekend. I gathered volunteers to make meals for different homes, but I also cooked for a couple of the homes as well. I made two of these coffeecakes. I made one for breakfast in one of the host homes and one for dessert in another. This amazing coffeecake got rave reviews.
The biggest factor in baking bundt cakes is making sure you cook them long enough. I can’t stress this enough. If you take the cake out five minutes too early it won’t be baked all the way through and the cake will come out in clumps. (Take it from someone who knows). 🙁 This particular coffeecake because it’s so deep and filled with so many ingredients takes about 1 1/2 hours to 1 3/4 hours to be baked completely. Insert a knife into the center of the cake ALL the way to the bottom. Only when the knife comes out totally clean is the cake done.
I have never had one of these cakes cook more quickly than about 1 hour 15 minutes. However, because every oven is different and some cook more quickly, you should start checking at around an hour. After that, check every 15 minutes until absolutely no goop is left on the knife when done.
Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake is such a delicious recipe it’s perfect to make for holidays like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. It’s also excellent to serve as a dessert. Plop a little vanilla ice cream on top and you have a match made in heaven. 🙂
Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake is awesome.
This cake is terrific for holiday breakfasts like Easter, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. But because raspberries can be purchased all year round these days, this is also great for Thanksgiving and Christmas breakfasts.
This festive cake is delightful for Valentine’s Day too!
Every bite of Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake is delightful.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the cake.
Put sliced almonds, flour and sugar in a bowl.
Stir to combine and set aside.
Soften butter. Add sugar, sour cream, eggs, almond extract, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Cream ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add unbleached flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods.
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine.
Grease and flour a bundt pan extremely well. Spoon one-third of the batter into the bottom of the prepared bundt pan.
Spoon half of the raspberries on top of the batter.
Sprinkle half of the almond streusel layer on top of the raspberries.
Spoon another third of the batter over top of the almond layer.
Top with remaining raspberries.
Add remaining almond streusel layer.
Top with remaining cake batter.
Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours or until a knife inserted in the center comes out totally clean.
Cool cake completely. Invert onto plate.
Combine glaze ingredients.
Drizzle glaze over top of cake and allow to set about 15-20 minutes before serving.
Serve Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake with fresh raspberries for a delightful holiday or company breakfast!
