Triple Berry Coffeecake

by Divine Domesticity on December 30th, 2008

If you are still entertaining guests at your house, consider this recipe for a lightly sweet coffeecake. Although the original recipe called for frozen raspberries, feel free to use whatever blend of berries sounds best to you. A dollop of sweetened whipped cream on the side is a delicious addition, along with a hot cup of coffee, of course.

Triple Berry Coffeecake
Serves 12

1 c. (2 sticks) butter (room temp)
4 eggs
1 1/2 c. sifted AP flour
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 (10 oz) pkg. frozen raspberries (Or a triple berry blend) in syrup, thawed and drained

Topping:

1/2 c. AP flour
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, melted
1/3 c. firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350 f degrees. Butter a 9 x 13-inch pan. Cream 1 cup of butter in a large bowl on low speed. Add the eggs, one at a time, incorporating after each addition. Mix in 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add to the creamed butter and beat on medium speed until well blended, about 3 minutes. Spoon into prepared pan, spreading evenly. Cover with raspberries.
