Very Berry Coffee Cake

Very Berry Coffee Cake is a great recipe for brunch or even a snack!

Very Berry Coffee Cake, made with fresh #strawberries and #raspberries

You guys are probably getting sick of all my strawberry recipes, but I just can’t help myself!  Berries are definitely my weakness!  Today I combined my two favorite berries- strawberries and raspberries- to create this delicious Very Berry Coffee Cake. 

When I told my kids I had Very Berry Coffee Cake in the oven baking, Miss Magoo (my 4 year old) quite seriously told me that she probably shouldn’t have any, since it’s not good for kids to have too much coffee.  Once I assured her that coffee cake does not actually have any coffee in it, she was willing to give it a try!

If you don’t like raspberries, or you don’t like strawberries, you can definitely use a full 3 cups of just one of the berries, instead of both.

This Berry Coffee Cake isn’t too sweet, so if you prefer a sweeter dish, you could add a streusel to the top before baking it, or a glaze after baking it.  Personally, I like it a little less on the sweet side, so it was just perfect for me.

What a fantastic cake Jamie! Raspberries and strawberries are such an excellent combo. I will be cheeky and add extra streusel ;)
