This Raspberry Coffee Cake is not an overly sweet coffee cake recipe, yet the delightfulness of the berries offsets a slightly dull cake and makes for a scrumptious morning wake-me-up! I love having a little bit of sweetness to accompany my morning coffee, and this turned out to be the perfect fit.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt

3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup unsweetened raspberry (fresh or frozen, if using frozen do not thaw)

1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon nonfat milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 In a bowl, combine the flour sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
2 Combine the egg, yogurt, butter, and vanilla: add to dry ingredients just until moistened.
3 Spoon two-thirds of the batter into an 8-in round baking pan (a pie or cake pan work great for this) coated with non-stick cooking spray.
4 Combine the brown sugar and raspberries; sprinkle over batter.
5 Spoon the remaining batter over the top.
6 Sprinkle with almonds.
7 Bake at 350°F for 35-40 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched and is golden brown.

10 Drizzle over coffee cake.
