My mother in law is coming to visit tomorrow and told me there better be a treat here waiting for her. Ok mom! Here it is, this is also going to be my entry for Ben’s I Love Baking event. I love it when I can get 2 things done at once! This recipe came from RecipeZaar and was posted by Donna M. This is another very good coffeecake made in a 9 inch spring form pan! This little beauty has a cup of sour cream in the crust, cream cheese for a filling and raspberry preserves and a crumb topping on top. YUM! And again this was EASY. I took lots of pictures when I made it so lets get started.
I made the batter and put it into the spring form pan. I used a small spoon to get the batter up the sides of the pan 2″.
The raspberry preserves went on top. I didn’t have seedless preserves so I put the preserves through a sifter to get the seeds out.
The crumb topping is on and now it’s time to bake!
It even looks good in the pan!
This is a beautiful coffeecake that looks like it came from a bakery.
