They won't know that this raspberry coffee cake is low calorie and low fat. The only thing they will know is that you are an excellent baker and this cake is delicious. I usually do not bother with the glaze. The recipe loses nothing if you opt for a glaze free coffee cake. Enjoy! P.S. This is 3 points per slice.

- Drizzle over coffee cake.
- Serve warm or at room temperature.
This is HEAVENLY! I was looking for just something like this for fresh raspberries from my CSA box. Wow! Just a perfect recipe--really. I did put the glaze on, but you really didn't need it. I didn't have almonds, though. Also, my yogurt was fat free and it seemed to be fine! It came out of the pan, it sliced just beautifully! This is a keeper keeper!! 9/13/2010--I have made this coffee cake almost every week, since trying it. Last week my CSA box didn't quite have 1 cup of raspberries, so I made up the difference with some frozen blueberries! One time I didn't have plain yogurt, and I substituted Lime yogurt--it was great. This week, I had some peaches from a farm that were a little on the dry mushy side--I skinned them, chopped and measured out 1 cup, added a sprinkle of cinnamon and YUM! This is one very versatile recipe.
I love that this is low fat and so simple to make. I made two little cakes and they were so pretty. Omitted the almonds since I didn't have any, and I substituted the plain yogurt with strawberry yogurt and sour cream (about 1/4 C of each). I used frozen raspberries and it turned out great. This is a keeper, thx so much Amber!
Wonderful! I loved the texture and perfect sweetness of this dish. It went together so quickly, keeping me happy that I didn't have to fuss with beaters and several bowls. I used fresh-picked raspberries and fat free plain yogurt. My husband thought this would be great with rhubarb too. Next time!
