Low carb almond flavoured coffee cake with a ribbon of cream cheese and studded with fresh raspberries. A perfect addition to your Mother’s Day brunch.
I am in a berry state of mind. Despite the fact that we’ve fallen back into chillier temps in New England and have had an excessive amount of rain, I have my sights set hard and fast on the approaching berry season. Or seasons, rather, since they all come in at slightly different times of the year. Berries make me happy and there is nothing like pick-your-own berries. We try to hit the farms at least 3 or 4 times in the summer, once for each of the big three (strawberries, raspberries and blueberries). And now that my kids are getting more adept at picking, we can bring home a LOT of berries. But they still don’t last very long because with 3 hungry kids, we eat a LOT of berries.
Those freshest of the fresh berries are a ways off yet, but I still have a hankering for lots of berry-flavoured treats. And so when I got mulling over coffee cake ideas for Mother’s Day, I just had to make something with berries. Plump juicy raspberries baked into a delicious almond coffee cake. With a ribbon of cream cheese running through the centre. How does that sound to you, my friends?
Sounds pretty good to me. And it tasted pretty great too!
This post original appeared on Live Better America, a site that is now defunct. I’ve had so many requests for the recipe, I decided I had to get it up on my site pronto! I guess everyone loves their coffee cake with cream cheese and raspberries. Can you blame them?
I have modified the sweetener amounts, as I prefer more a little more Swerve and a little less stevia. I have also changed the servings to 12 (instead of 16) to be more reflective of a good-sized portion. I had to stay within certain nutrient limits on their site (fats, calories, etc) but now am free to publish the recipe as I see fit!
