Hey there– This coffee cake was inevitable. Andi from next door dropped by with a big bag of lemons. There were leftover raspberries moldering in the fridge. Then I ran across this pretty coffee cake on Pinterest. It all came together for a tender tart fruity cake warm from the oven. I think it will show up again soon around here…
LEMON RASPBERRY COFFEE CAKE
1/ 2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup unflavored yogurt
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tab. lemon juice
1 tab. finely grated lemon peel
1 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tab. lemon juice
To make the streusel, mix together the 1/2 cup sugar and 1/3 cup flour in a small mixing bowl. Then cut in the 1/4 cup butter with a pastry blender (or two forks). Set aside.
For the cake, in a mixing bowl stir together the 2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Then add the milk, yogurt, oil, egg, lemon juice and grated lemon peel and stir it all until it is blended together. Then gently fold in the raspberries.
Spoon the batter into a 9″ cake pan (or I used a 10″ tart pan) and then sprinkle the streusel evenly over the top. Pop it into a 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes.
After you pull the cake from the oven, let it cool 10 or 15 minutes and then drizzle the glaze over the top. Beautiful– and ready to eat!
