Raspberry Streusel Coffee Cake


I purchased 6 pints of Raspberries and had to use em up. I found this recipe at the Land of Lakes website and changed it up a bit. I like the addition of Ginger and think it goes really well with the Raspberry. I also used Splenda Sugar Blend. It was tender and delicious!

For the cake
3/4 cup sugar (I used Splenda Sugar Blend)
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (fresh is best)
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 cup fresh or individually frozen raspberries, unthawed

Streusel Ingredients:
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup cold butter

Heat oven to 375°F.

Combine 3/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add milk and eggs; continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

Add 2 cups flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and ginger. Reduce speed to low. Beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

Spread batter into greased 8-inch square baking pan. Place the raspberries on top, pushing them into the batter.

Stir together all topping ingredients except butter in small bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle mixture over batter.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean

Hiya - hey I agree with Lou (first comment).

Nothing worse than folks who use the boxed mixes, and think they can cook, eh? LOL

No, you've gotta put in the effort if you want the kudos and woman, you get major KUDOS!!! Looks divine my friend.
