Fruit and Cream Cheese Coffeecake

Julie Branham


I love recipes that lend themselves to adaptation and this one fits the bill perfectly.

Feel free to substitute whatever fruit you may have on hand or prefer. I've used raspberries, blackberries, peaches and cinnamon-spiced apples, chopped prunes even fresh figs. Just remember that if you're using frozen fruit do not thaw it before adding it to the recipe.

I've added a bit more cream cheese to the recipe at times and when I've been out of cream cheese I've substituted half a cup of sour cream or vanilla yogurt with wonderful results.

Feel free to add any spices or flavorings that compliment the fruit you're using - cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom, mace, vanilla, almond, lemon flavorings.

I've also added 1/4 cup of oats to the topping at times to give it a yummy, heartier texture - especially good with apples.
Want an even crunchier topping?
Add a handful of chopped nuts, wheat germ or even grape nuts cereal.

Any way you bake up this delicious and easy cake I know your family will enjoy it as much as mine!

  1. For batter, in a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg. Combine 1 cup flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with milk.
