Breakfast Raspberry Coffee Cake

Hey there! I’ve been offline for about ten days, and the first week it was on purpose, as my family took a vacation to Williamsburg, Virginia. Then we drove over to my parents home in West Virginia for a few days and was taken by surprise by the damage a huge storm had done to their property.

They lost many trees, but thankfully their house wasn’t hit or any of their buildings. They haven’t had power or phone service for five days and it is unclear when they will get it back. Evidently many people have been affected by this storm, and it is a good reminder for me to be prepared as much as I can for emergencies like this.

I am glad to be back online and have a recipe to share which makes a yummy breakfast or anytime cake.

On one of my yard sale scoutings, I picked up a little cookbook by Pampered Chef called Recipes from the Heart Cookbook. I have never been to one of their parties, but some of my family members have, and so I was interested in checking out their recipes. This berry coffee cake was adapted from this cookbook and it was really yummy especially served warm.

Here is what you need:

1/2 cup room temperature butter
8 ounces cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs
1 cup of white flour
1 cup of whole wheat flour (you can use all white flour if you prefer, I like the texture that a mixture of the two gives)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup plus 1 Tablespoon of milk (if you use only white flour, decrease by 1 Tablespoon)
1/2 cup chopped pecans (I like to add more)
1/2 cup raspberry preserves

Cream butter and cream cheese on medium mixer speed, then add in sugar and vanilla.

Then alternate adding the milk and flour mixture to the creamed mixture.

This was delicious served warm with vanilla ice-cream for dessert, but I think with the addition of whole wheat flour and the nuts, it’s suitable and very tasty for breakfast.
Hope you enjoy!
