Coffee Cake with Raspberry Filling

This pretty coffee cake, swirled with a fresh raspberry filling, is tender and moist with a crunchy crumb topping. “You could use cherries, blackberries or blueberries instead of raspberries,” Mary Ross notes from Washburn, Wisconsin.

  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground mace, optional
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed

  • In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add mace if desired. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk the egg, milk and vanilla; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened. Spoon into a 9x5-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray.
  • In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch; stir in water until smooth. Add raspberries and lemon juice. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Pour over batter; cut through with a knife to swirl.

    This cake is moist and turned out good. I used 1/3 cup of mixed berry jelly instead of making the filling, still adding the lemon juice. The nuts were left out, as was the mace since I don't buy it. I also baked mine in a bundt cake pan.

    Doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9 x 13 pan for 40 minutes. I didn't use the mace either. Delicious and beautiful to serve!

    This recipe is delicious! I've never heard of mace, so I didn't add it. I used a 9" round cake pan which worked beautifully for this recipe. Oh, and I used frozen raspberries instead of fresh.

    Love it. I skipped the mace because i didn't have it on hand and it turned out great. Also left out the nuts since hubby doesn't care for them. This is a keeper
