A Good Little Cake~
While perusing FWS..I came upon a photo of a cake that wet my appetite..I marched upstairs that day and made it:)
Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite courtesy of Allrecipes
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup cold butter
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sour cream
1 egg, beaten
1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract
1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup raspberry jam
1/2 cup slivered almonds
Confectioners' sugar (optional)
1) In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Remove 1 cup and set aside. To remaining crumbs, add baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add sour cream, egg and almond extract; mix well. Spread in the bottom and 2 in. up the sides of a greased 9-in. springform pan.
2) To make filling, beat cream cheese, sugar and egg in a small bowl until blended. Pour over batter; spoon raspberry jam on top. Sprinkle with almonds and reserved crumbs.
3) Bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; remove sides from pan. Dust top with confectioners' sugar if desired. Yield: 8 servings.
The power of her photo..was just irresistible~
I had to see if it could be a keeper here..It's the kind of dessert I like to make.
Thanks One Perfect Bite~
I would say this cake is more than just ok:) I added more almond extract and next time I would add more jam.I used Strawberry Jam 'cause that's what I had on hand~
It's un bon petit gâteau~
I loved the way it sat on one of my mom's dessert plates..Sometimes..that's all it takes for me.
