Berry-filled Cream Cheese Coffee Cake
This recipe looks complicated, but is really not difficult at all. The trick is to make the fillings before starting the cake. This makes an impressive brunch item, but is simple enough to serve for leisurely weekend breakfasts or even a dessert. If you don’t have a springform pan, use a regular 9-inch cake pan and bake it on a cookie sheet to catch any spills.
Mix all ingredients except almond slices together with an electric mixture until smooth. Pour into prepared 9-inch springform pan and use the back of a large spoon to create an indentation in the center.
Pour the cream cheese mixture over the indented cake batter. Spread the partially cooled berry mixture over the cream cheese layer.
Top with reserved crumb topping and sprinkle with sliced almonds.
Bake 40 to 45 minutes until filling is set. Cool at least 10 minutes before cutting. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar immediately before serving.
