Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

A few days ago I posted a coffee cake recipe that is really yummy. Here is another one that I like to make. It is also a cake that is a specialty of a B & B. This is like a big cheese Danish that you slice. I love the almond flavor in the cake. Also, this works fine with Neufchatel (1/3 less fat) cream cheese. And I do use low-fat sour cream. Try using the Polaner All-Fruit spread for this. I think it is a little better for you. Or if you choose a sugar free jam, I don't think it would make a difference to the recipe. Anywhere you can cut back, try to do it. I am going to try this using Splenda as I would like to take it to the nursing home residents for a treat. If you like cheese Danish, this is a must try.
