This post is sponsored by Dutch Farms! I used several of their products here, but most importantly, the “cream cheese”, a.k.a. Neufchatel Cheese on top! But who would click over for a cake that was named, Neufchatel Coffee Cake? ExactlY!

Also? HI-HEY, friends! How are you? Still Christmas shopping? I haven’t even started, yet.
Correction. I DID start, but I ended up buying things all for myself. Shameful, I know! BUT, in my defense, how do you pass up a 60% off Louis Vuitton bag? Right. You DON’T! And those SJP shoes… ♥

And then I made this cake, my guilt went away, and all things were right with the world.

This cake may or may not be the best thing to come out of my kitchen all month. It’s delicious. My Mom and I, the coffee and cake addicts that we are, ate the. whole. thing.  As in, the whole cake.  A little piece here, a little piece there, three more pieces for lunch, another after dinner… It adds up pretty quickly. And it’s easier to want to inhale it all when you know that it’s a lightened-up coffee cake. HOW much lighter?! 210 calories per slice. BAM!

This whole cake however wouldn’t be complete without the gold standard of Dutch Farms all-the-things. We have Dutch Farms Eggs in here, Dutch Farms Neufchatel Cheese, and Dutch Farms Butter.

There’s really nothing to it. Classic buttery coffee cake holds everything together. Smooth neufchatel cream cheese mixed with an egg white is baked right on top, sweet raspberries are poured all over, and the whole thing is sprinkled with powdered sugar. It’s perfect weekend breakfast, Monday snack, and a Tuesday lunch.

    I’m gonna try one more time! The cantata bread I’m talking about you mentioned in one of your recipients, however it was only in passing. It is a bread with a soft center and a brown crusty surface. I th I.k you mentioned you had updated your recipe from your college days . The bread needs to be moistened while baking.

    1. Hi Dawn! Yep, you can definitely use frozen raspberries, but please rinse the berries in cold water several times before using, otherwise your cake will turn pink. Try to rinse them until the water is noticeably lighter when you drain them. Dry the berries well with several layers of paper towels, all around.

        Thanks ! I would never have thought about the color change. Could be cute for Valentines day. This looks amazing and I think my hubby might like it even though it has fruit in it lol
