Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake


YUM is about the best word I can use to describe this! 

It was delicious warm, with the tangy raspberries and sweet warm almond glaze. The nuts added a nice texture, and each bite was rich and flavorful. I served it with eggs and fruit..fun for a brunch!





It looked so pretty in the dish,too. I'm embarrassed to say this was gone in a day...just the 2 of us polished it off!

I have made blueberry coffee cake with powdered sugar as my only topping and loved it. Thanks to your blog I have the same recipe again. Will be trying several of your recipes soon. They all look outstanding.
