Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake

An accident led me to Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake today, and I couldn't be more pleased.

Yesterday I tried baking a British tart and completely messed the measurements up (which I'd like to think is easy to do when you're trying to convert grams to cups, gah!), so today I was on a mission to use my leftover raspberries. Allrecipes pointed me to this heavenly treat. It's the perfect blend of sweet-tartness, light and refreshing, and easy to make. Which is good, because I'll be making it again.

What you'll need:
1 cup fresh raspberries
3 TBSP brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup sour cream
2 TBSP butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1/4 cup sliced almonds

For the glaze:
1/4 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
1 tsp milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C. Spray an 8inch round cake pan with cooking spray.

Combine raspberries and brown sugar in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl mix the sour cream, melted butter, vanilla extract and egg. Add to the flour mixture. Stir until just moist. 

Spoon 2/3 of the batter into the prepared pan and spread over the bottom. Add the raspberry mixture over top. Spoon the remaining batter mixture over the raspberries. Top with almonds.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Combine the glaze mixture and drizzle over the cake. 

Enjoy it warm with a cup of coffee or tea! :-)

  1. Mmmm. That recipe looks so good! Too bad I just started a month of no suger. I'll have to make it this summer.

    I like to cook cabbage with sausage and onion. Just add a little water put it all in a frying pan and cook on low until the onions are soft. Be sure to post your favorite cabbage recipes!

    Here's a recipe I justed posted:

  2. I forgot to say that I usually put rice with the cabbage,onion, and sausage. Happy cooking!

    1. Oh! Thank you for the cabbage suggestion. I actually have sausage in the freezer that I've been meaning to cook.
