Excellent! We thought this tasted just like Entenman's Raspberry Swirl coffee cake. I will definitely be making it again. I froze it as directed for 3 days before serving and it worked fine - I just pulled it out of the freezer the night before I wanted to serve it. I didn't think mine was done after 45 minutes so I left it in for another few minutes and it ended up a little "crusty" on the edges. So next time I will not be fooled by the slightly soft cream cheese filling, and pull it out at exactly 45 minutes. edit: I made this again. :) A couple of hints for anybody else making this: 1. The batter is very sticky and hard to spread. So I spread it as best as I could with the spatula, then I put a light dusting of flour on top and used my fingers to finish pressing up the sides. 2. The raspberry jam is much easier to work with if you put it in a bowl and stir vigorously before spooning on top. (it is kinda lumpy when straight out of the jar).
Make this recipe for a dinner party and everyone enjoyed it. I added my touch by making an icing on top. I made it with confectionnary sugar mixed with orange juice and vanilla. I also substituted the lemon rind by orange rind. The orange rind with the raspbery was a good match! Will do it again but next time will double the cheese filling.
This was wonderful for breakfast this morning even though I goofed. LOL! I accidentally didn't see to seperate the eggs (hadn't had all my coffee yet) and put the 2 into the mix), so I had to do an extra egg with the cream cheese. I used 1/2 t lemon extract as I didn't have lemon rind to grate. The cake came out tender and delicious! Thanks, Boomette1!
