Raspberry Cheesecake Coffee Cake

Summer berries are the absolute BEST.
This Raspberry Cheesecake Coffee Cake will knock the socks off anyone.

You know how people say there will come a moment in your life when you know you are "turning into your Mother"?

Well, it's true. 

I grew up with my mom going to dinner with her girlfriends, with her hosting "card club" late into the night with me trying to sleep upstairs and with her jetting off to have "coffee" with her girls every Saturday morning.

I have turned into her.  Are you reading this mom?  I have turned into you.  When I was baking this coffee cake last week to deliver to a friend, I immediately had the thoughts this would be perfect to bring to "coffee".

I don't even really drink coffee.  I love a good cappuccino, but does that even count?  And currently, my friends and I don't meet for coffee dates, but I imagine it is coming....once we graduate from 'our-kids-are-in-bed-lets-go-drink-wine-on-the-patio' kinda of nights.

So to all my mom's coffee friends who are reading this right now {Pam, Debbie, Fran, Mary, Pat...and the many others} one of you needs to make this for your next coffee date.

The bottom layer is your classic yellow coffee cake.  Layer two is pure gold.  Cheesecake! Rich, creamy, tart cheesecake.  Then raspberries, because why not?  They are in season right now and are bursting with flavor.  And finally streudel, because a coffee cake is not a coffee cake without streudel.

It all comes together so beautifully.

Feel free to use whatever berries you like or have around.  I'd stick with blackberries or strawberries, but that is just me.  I'm sure any fruit would work.

I used my springform pan for this cake.  It makes it SUCH a breeze when slicing.  I highly recommend my KitchenAid Nonstick 9" Springform Pan.  This $15.99 price tag is well worth it. Perfect for coffee cakes and cheesecakes.

Oh, and this mini version?  On my wish list too.

I only use mine about 3-4 times a year, but when I do I'm happy I have it.  Nothing ever sticks and it comes out looking perfect.  Never once have I had food stick to the pan.  And being nonstick it washes up in a cinch.
