What i like to do before i start baking is making sure i have all the ingredients (as you can see...).
After the streusel, I started my batter. Those brown glops were almond pie filling.
Then I grabbed my streusel and started sprinkling it on my 1st layer of coffee cake, and then I cut my bananas and plopped them everywhere, too.
When my cake was done, it was a bit hard to get out of the bottom so I should've put more shortening!
Raspberry-Marzipan Coffee Cake (we made it banana-almond coffee cake)
PREP: 20 min., BAKE: 50 min. @ 350 degrees
Makes 12 servings (seriously though? like 6)
Make almond streusel first and set aside.
1/4 cup firm butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup slivered almonds (we food-processes whole almonds)
Then make the batter.
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup softened butter
1 cup milk
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla (we used almond extract)
1/2 teaspoon salt (we accidentally used 1 tsp., it was good!)
1 large egg
1/2 package of almond paste finely chopped (we used almond pie filling from a can)
1 cup fresh raspberries (we used overripe bananas - yum!)
Fill the pie tin halfway, then glop on some streusel and pie filling and bananas. Then pour the other half of the batter and then more streusel and pie filling. Then bake!
