"I made this coffee cake and brought it to work since I had some homemade raspberry jam. Instead of using almonds (due to nut allergies), I used a streusel topping. Everyone loved it; I took home an empty plate. It is a great way to use up jam. You could use any type of jam and yogurt you wanted. Definitely a keeper!!"
