Made in a 9-inch springform pan, this Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake rises high and has a tender, buttery crumb. This from-scratch coffee cake is covered with a rich cream cheese layer, raspberry jam, and sliced almonds.

The combination of almond extract and sliced almonds gives this coffee cake lots of almond flavor. Serve with a few fresh raspberries for a delicious addition to a brunch or nibble on a slice with your morning coffee.

Tips For Making Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake:

  • I use White Lily All-Purpose Flour, which is a southern flour with a low protein content. It is perfect for tender, baked goods. If you can’t find it, use cake flour.
  • The batter is very thick and you will need to spread it with either your fingers or a rubber spatula sprayed with cooking spray.
  • You could easily substitute strawberry, peach, apricot, or blueberry jam for the raspberry jam.
  • If you don’t like almond flaovr, try using 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract instead of the almond extract and use pecans or walnuts instead of sliced almonds.
  • If you don’t have a springform pan, you can make this coffee cake in a 9-inch cake pan, but it needs to be a deep one since the coffee cake will rise quite a bit.
  • Place the pan you are baking it in on a baking sheet just in case any batter overflows or leaks out. You don’t want a mess on the bottom of your oven.

  • 2/3 cup raspberry jam
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine flour and 3/4 cup sugar. Cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Mesure out 1 cup for topping and set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 9-inch springform pan with baking spray.
  • Press mixture into the springform pan. It will be very thick. Use a rubber spatula sprayed with cooking spray to even it out or you can spray your hands and use them.
  • To make cream cheese layer, place cream cheese, sugar, and egg in a medium bowl. Use an electric mixer to beat until smooth. Spread on top of the bottom layer.
  • Place raspberry jam in a small bowl and microwave for 15 seconds. This will make it easier to spread.
    Spread on top of the cream cheese layer.
  • Combine almonds with the set aside topping and sprinkle on top.
