Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake + Video

The perfect brunch addition, this Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake will have everyone looking for a second slice. It comes together in minutes so it's no problem putting together before the family wakes up. See this recipe MADE ON VIDEO HERE.


I don't think I have to convince anyone how good coffee cake always seems to taste. Whether you eat it in the morning with coffee or in the afternoon with hot tea....it's just always so dang good! This recipe is no exception. It was our little treat today.

Anytime I'm at Costco and they have great looking berries, I grab them and throw them in the freezer for when inspiration hits. Why buy a coffee cake when they are so easy to make? I threw this one together while I was getting the boy's breakfasts made and making their lunches for school. I'm the ultimate multitasker.

Anyway, next time you see some beautiful raspberries, pick them up and give this Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake a whirl. No mixer needed! However, sometimes I'm in the mood for coffee cake without berries and this Sour Cream Chocolate Chip version satisfies all those cravings. And honestly, no one can resist a slice of this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake regardless of the time of year.


How beautiful is this deliciousness? The family is going to love it. I can't reiterate enough how easy this is to put together. All you need is a mixing bowl and and an 8" cake pan. This cake also freezes and thaws out really well. It's the perfect breakfast or dessert. Perfect for serving at brunch too.

  • "I came across this recipe the other day and, feeling the need for some cake this morning, thought I would give it a go. I had to make it with what was on hand though, so I used frozen mixed berries, plain yogurt instead of the sour cream, a mix of gluten free flour (a necessity unfortunately) and ground almonds, and topped it with chopped walnuts. A few changes but it is wonderful! Next time I will go shopping first and make it properly – it should be even better! Thanks for the recipe."

Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake

Recipe from: cathy | Serves: 8

Ingredients

Cake:

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds

Icing:

  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • In a bowl, combine raspberries and brown sugar; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, sour cream, butter and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Batter will be dense.
  • Spoon half the batter into a greased and floured 8” round baking pan. (Make sure to completely cover the bottom of pan, it will seem like there is not enough batter but there is. I used a small off-set spatula to spread it around evenly.) Top with raspberry mixture. Spoon the remaining batter over raspberries. (Again, it will seem like there is not enough batter. Just swirl it around gently, you don't have to completely cover the raspberries.) Sprinkle with almonds (I did not have sliced almonds as the recipe called for so I just coarsely sliced whole almonds, worked fine.)
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes before removing from pan. During the cooling time, carefully run a sharp knife around the edges to loosen them.
  • In a small bowl, combine the icing ingredients; drizzle over the coffee cake and serve.

    This looks lovely and sounds simple , but where does the coffee ingredient come in? or do you mean its a good cake with coffee? I’m confused, I was looking for how much coffee you use?

    i have this in the oven now for our Christmas morning breakfast. Can’t wait. I only had blanched slivered almonds so used those on top. And we love almod flavor so substituted the vanilla extract with almond extract. Can’t wait smells delish!

    Doubled. Don’t know why original recipe isn’t doubled. After 30 minutes it was raw in center. I will bake for 35-40 minutes next time. Excellent coffee cake.

    Is there any alternative for the sour cream?
    Can I put milk?

      Hmmm. Sour cream is rich, tangy and thick and milk would not offer the same result. I would try plain, low-fat yogurt instead.

        low fat yogurt will go runny and change the texture of the cake – go with full fat for good results (it’s such a small amount spread over an 8×8 cake, so it’s not that much fat per serving)

    I wonder if you could use Almond Flour to cut down some of the carbs?

    Why is it called “coffee” cake when there’s no coffee in it?
    Could a teaspoon of instant coffee powder be added to the icing for extra flavour?
