Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Coffee cake is such a delicious way to start the day! It's even better when it has a filling of cream cheese and raspberries!

The original recipe used fresh raspberries cut in half. I always substitute frozen for fresh. I can find them any time of the year and they are cheaper than fresh and they last longer. I was able to cut the frozen raspberries, I just had to be careful and they did not always cut in half, some where in more pieces, but that is okay. Frozen or fresh will work in this recipe, just do not thaw the frozen raspberries, add them in frozen.

Pour the remaining batter over top and spread into an even layer. Sprinkle the streusel on the top.
