Cherry / Raspberry Coffee Cake

There's nothing not to like about this coffee cake/dessert! You can change up the fruit to your liking. Its easy to make . . . a combination between a Platz and a cobbler. Another recipe from my mom.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ¼ cup flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp soda
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1 - 6oz pkg raspberries (frozen)

    Crumb Topping
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup butter

Method:

  1. Grease 9X12 or 10 inch round spring form pan. If you want to be able to lift out rectangular shaped cake, line pan with parchment paper.
  2. Mix dry ingredients and cut in butter with pastry blender, till crumbly.
  3. In a separate small bowl, beat eggs with fork, stir in buttermilk and vanilla.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring to moisten.
  5. Divide batter, spreading just over half of it (about 2/3) into greased pan.
  6. Spread with cherries and then raspberries. (frozen raspberries are easy to crumble by hand)
  7. Using a teaspoon, dot the rest of the batter over the fruit.
  8. Make crumb topping, using pastry blender, and sprinkle over cake.
  9. Bake at 350 F for 45 - 50 minutes.
  10. Serve plain, with whipped cream or ice cream.

  18. I am wondering if this dessert is best served warm, or is it still just as delicious baked ahead of time (earlier in the day)?
    If it can be baked ahead of time, then I'll plan to make it for our Care Group this week!
    Thanks Mrs. F. :)

  19. Jen - this cake definitely does not need to be served warm ... it's just as good completely cooled off. Im fact, it keeps well (covered) in the fridge for days. Does not dry out.

  21. This is the first recipe from your site that I've tried, and what a delight! So very easy, and so very good. I added a little lemon zest sprinkled over the cherries (after I'd licked the spoon, I thought they were a little lacklustre). A very big thank-you & now I'm eager to try so many more of your recipes....
