Raspberry Almond Coffeecake with Cream Cheese filling

Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake PINThis is an easy, delicious coffee cake that I started making right after Tavis and I were married. I was in the full on “homemaker” mode and trying to show off my skills.

As yummy and quick as this raspberry coffee cake recipe was to throw together, combined with my other “homemaker” concoctions I was mixing up, I had to set it¬†aside for a while when we started to remove white flour and sugar from our diet due to… clothes starting to not fit… everything in moderation, right?!?!

Last week I had this desire to revive this oldie but goodie right after Tavis and I finished a 5 mile run…

I figured “what the heck, why run if you can’t have a treat every once in a while” so I threw this together as a special treat.

Please disregard the running clothes that I am wearing, the coffee cake could not wait for me to change… I needed it NOW. ūüėČ

In this picture I feel like I remember looking at the bowl and saying “is it coffee cake yet?!?! can I eat it?!?! I am¬†drinking my coffee now and I NEED IT!!!”

Run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen before removing the top of the springform pan. Allow to cool an additional 30 minutes before removing the bottom of the pan or cutting the cake.If you do not allow the cake enough time to cool you run the risk of the filling oozing out when you cut it.

    This recipe is the best! Made it yesterday to bring to see my sisters-in-law, and they absolutely loved it! It was such a hit they were dividing it up to take home. One sis said, “it’s delicious, just the right amount of almonds”. It beat the local bakery hands down. I will never buy again…only bake! Thank you for making me look good to the in-laws. I am going to play around with the recipe to see if I can use lactose free product next time so I can taste it too! I will let you know if it’s a success. Thanks for all you do. It is so sweet of you to share the best recipes.
