Muffin Top Coffee Cake
The top of this blueberry raspberry coffee cake is sprinkled with sugar before it is baked. This creates a wonderfully sweet crust to the cake that works so well with the tangy fresh fruits. It has that wonderful texture you find on muffins. Yum!
Can you use frozen fruit in this recipe?
I prefer to use fresh raspberries and blueberries, but you can use frozen berries if that’s what you have. If you use frozen, be sure to keep them in the freezer until you are ready to put them in the batter and bake the cake. If you add them when they are thawed or thawing they will release too much liquid into the batter.
How long does this cake last?
If you keep the coffee cake in an airtight container at room temperature it will be good for around 3 or 4 days. However, you can extend the shelf life to one week by storing it in the fridge. Ensure that it is either wrapped in clingwrap/aluminum foil or stored in an airtight container to prevent it from drying out.
Recipe Notes and Tips
- Be sure to grease your pan so that the Blueberry Raspberry Coffee Cake can be removed easily.
- Cook the cake in a pre-heated oven so that it bakes evenly.
- The cake is baked when it is a deep golden brown and slightly pulls away from the sides of the pan. It should have a crackled top.
