Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake with Chocolate Drizzle


Do you want to make a coffee cake that is moist and delicious and easy to make? Stupid question. Of course you do!

I love coffee cake because it can be breakfast, dessert, or a mid-day snack. I had some fresh raspberries in the refrigerator and needed something to do with them, so I decided to try out a Taste of Home recipe. Whenever a cake recipe calls for sour cream, you know it is going to be good!


Truth be told, you don’t even need the chocolate drizzle on top. This cake is great on its own. That little hint of chocolate just takes it over the top.
