Fresh or frozen raspberries?

I used frozen raspberries in this cake, but fresh would be amazing too. To use fresh berries, reduce cooking time by 5 minutes and check cake to see if it is done.

The whole cake is topped with a crumb topping made with almonds, cinnamon and brown sugar.

Why is it called a coffee cake?

Just about any cake can be called a coffee cake. Traditionally they are a cake with a streusel topping. Coffee cake does not contain any coffee, but it is perfect eaten alongside a cup of coffee! If you love coffee cakes, check out this Blueberry Banana Coffee Cake

    No one noticed that the amount of vanilla extract is missing from the recipe? The directions say to add it in but doesn’t say how much.

      Whoops! You are so right! You will want to add one teaspoon of vanilla. I’ll add it to the recipe right now. Thanks for letting me know! šŸ™‚

    Is it 340 calories for the whole thing or just one serving? If it is for one serving, what are the servings and their sizes??

      The calories are per serving. I cut the coffee cake into 8 pieces and calculated the calories based on 8 servings. You could divide the cake into more pieces, making smaller sizes and fewer calories.

    Oh, I love, love, love coffee cakes! And that almond crumble on top sounds like a really fun addition. The flavor and the crunch would be top notch…and that doesn’t even count the raspberries in there. Perfect breakfast/dessert right there!

      If I plan it just right, there will be enough for breakfast and then for dessert!

    Wow! That cake looks amazing. A quick peak in my freezer shows only blueberries and mangoes so raspberries are on my next shopping list. Great idea adding the almonds.

    I really love this kind of cakes! Soft and moist, juicy from the fruit and with a crumble topping! You might know by now that I only eat sweet for breakfast (in typical Italian tradition), so this coffee cake is right up my alley! šŸ™‚
