Raspberry Coffee Cake

READY IN: 55mins




  • Combine eggs, sour cream, milk, butter and vanilla in stand mixer or mixing bowl. Beat until creamy in stand mixer or with hand mixer. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  • In greased 8x8-inch baking dish or other pastry dish of similar size, add about 2/3 of the batter. Spread fresh raspberries over the batter and then sprinkle with chopped almonds and drizzle agave or maple syrup over the raspberries.
  • Pour the remaining 1/3 of the batter over the raspberries. Don't worry if the raspberries aren't all covered by the remaining batter.
  • Bake at 350°F for 35-40 minutes, or until cake is golden brown and springy when touched. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes on a cooling rack, before slicing and serving.
  • Make glaze in small bowl. Whisk powdered sugar, milk and vanilla with a fork. After adding the first 3/4 cup of powdered sugar, add more powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until glaze reaches desired consistency. Drizzle glaze over cake or over each piece as it is served.
  • Eat. One slice. Or maybe two.
