Cream Cheese Raspberry Coffee Cake

I’m just going to come right out and admit it…

I’m not a huge fan of raspberries. GASP!!

It’s the small seeds that get stuck in my teeth that make me shy away from anything with raspberries in it.

I love the flavor, but those seeds… argh!

Cream Cheese Raspberry Coffee Cake

So when I stumbled across this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens that uses seedless raspberry preserves swirled into a moist cream cheese coffee cake…

Well, you better believe I made it! In fact, I made it twice! 🙂

Cream Cheese Raspberry Coffee Cake

Why did I not know about seedless raspberry preserves? I’m in love.

This cake was so deliciously moist and had just the perfect amount of sweetness from the raspberries.

I loved swirling the preserves all around the cake. How pretty is that?!

The cake bakes up in just 30 minutes and then it’s ready to slice in to!

What I love most about this cake is that it’s served warm with just a dusting of powdered sugar. You don’t have to wait for the cake to cool and then make a frosting to go on top. It’s simple, elegant and perfect for a quick weeknight dessert or family get-together!

If you’re not a fan of raspberries, you could substitute the raspberry preserves for strawberry or blueberry… or just about any type of preserve or jam you want!

Don’t forget to serve it with a few fresh berries on the side!

    Thank you for this recipe! I love this coffee cake! I first tried it 5 years ago and have made it numerous times since.

    It is also really nice with a topping of fresh fruit when in season:

    Blueberry & peach topping:
    3/4 cup blueberries
    1 – 2 peaches in slices with skin
    5 tbsp. sugar
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    dash of ginger

    Distribute fruit evenly over batter. Combine sugar and spices and sprinkle over fruit.

    Cherry topping:
    1 cup cherries
    1/3 cup slivered almonds
    5 tbsp. sugar

    Distribute cherries evenly over batter. Sprinkle with sugars and top with almond slivers.

        Hmm… I’ve always had great results with this recipe as written. I’m wondering if you’re at a higher elevation maybe?

    I attempted this cake with my preschool students today! Even though their measurements are not done to a t-, the cake turned out very delicious and they ate every last crumb that was left. Fantastic and simple recipe. Will definitely be making this again.

    I am an old cake lover :). Since teenage, I have been enjoying various kinds of cakes and then I started preparing different cakes myself. By today, I have made more than 100 cakes from different recipes. I mostly picked recipes from and found them very delicious to eat. That’s true :). I make good cakes. But still today when I see a new cake recipe, I wonder how fast new cakes are coming and coming to this world. Due to short time these days, I do not make cakes very frequently but do it somehow at some time. I liked your cake cheers 🙂 .

    Shawn, this looks lovely! That swirl is so beautiful! And I love raspberry, and cake (especially for breakfast) — can’t wait to make this!

    Hi Shawn, I wonder how fresh raspberries would work? Perhaps just swirl them thru ….. Worth a try..
    Love your recipes !
