This Almond Raspberry Coffee Cake is AMAZING!

Made with a tin of raspberry pie filling and other ingredients that you probably already have on hand, it’s a quick and easy recipe too … and turns out every time!

The almond extract and the sliced almonds combine beautifully with the raspberry filling to create a scrumptious, mouthwatering taste!

You can also substitute blueberries in the place of raspberries for the filling

Serve warm, or cold, plain or with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream.

Ingredients

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup margarine

Spread 2/3 of the batter into the bottom and 2 inches up the sides of a 9″ springform pan.

Spoon the raspberry pie filling evenly over the batter.

Drop the remaining 1/3 of the batter over the filling.
