Raspberry-Almond Coffee Cake

You can never have too many raspberries, or raspberry recipes!

The backyard raspberries were happily turning red, 10-20 at a time. Just the right amount to wander through the backyard garden and pop a few in my mouth.

And then we had three days of 100+ temperatures. All of a sudden I had ripe, luscious raspberries everywhere! Except that most of them suffered from sun scald. No matter – they may not be as pretty with their scars, but they sure do taste just as good. An early morning harvest netted 4 cups of berries. Most of them went into this cake.

Although I like cake, I am not crazy over frosting. So in the summer I love to make less sweet but fruit-full coffee cakes. I always look forward to Sinfully Good Blueberry Cake, and this raspberry cake is another winner.
