THB : Raspberry-Almond Coffee Cake

It's time for another coffee cake at The Home Bakers (THB). This is our bake #32, Raspberry-Almond Coffee Cake is selected by the lovely Angela of The Charmed Cupcake


The base is a lovely moist, soft butter cake with tender crumbs. Raspberries are scattered over the batter and top with sprinkles of streusel which is mixed with flaked almonds. I do not have any raspberries, and they are rather expensive, so I have substitute with some frozen mulberries, and it turns out really nice. Recipe calls for lemon zest, the lemons I have are "naked" lemons! LOL! So instead of buying more lemons just for the zest, I have used orange zest instead, since I have some oranges in my fridge. (No "naked" oranges, I ate the oranges!)  :o)


I've made half a recipe and bake in a 7" springform pan.


A delicious cake, with moist, tender crumbs yet quite light in texture. As usual, I always have a pot of tea ready when I bake simple cakes like this. A lovely tea-time treat with the family.

  4. Joyce, I was wondering what are "naked" lemons and I realised that these are lemons which you have already zested. LOL! This looks like a lovely cake especially the toppings.

  12. This looks delicious. I've actually never had mulberries but would love to try them. Raspberries are expensive here too so this cake was a bit of an investment...especially because they are so yummy that I immediately ate all the leftover ones while the cake was in the oven!
