Fresh Raspberry Sour Cream Crumb Cake

That's fresh, as opposed to old & stale, which really wouldn't flow too well in the title. Anyhoo, this was one of those "gotta make it soon" recipes even though I am not a huge sweets eater. I figured I'd make it & then pawn it off on my wonderful co-workers as well as my parents who came over for dessert on Sunday. It was so light & not very sweet at all. Perfect for a holiday & even better for a brunch or Bunko or something with all the ladies. It was even better the next day, served at room temp!!!!!

FRESH RASPBERRY SOUR CREAM CRUMB CAKE

Printable Recipe Here

For the crumb topping:
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 2⁄3 cup granulated sugar
• Grated zest of 1 lemon
• 8 Tbs. (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

For the cake:
• 1 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 cup granulated sugar
• 2 tsp. baking powder
• 1⁄4 tsp. baking soda
• 1⁄4 tsp. salt
• 3 eggs
• 1 cup sour cream
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract
• 2 cups fresh raspberries
• 2 Tbs. confectioners’ sugar

Preheat an oven to 350°F. Grease & flour a 10-inch round springform pan.

To make the crumb topping, in a small bowl, stir together the flour, granulated sugar & lemon zest. Add the melted butter & stir with a fork until the mixture is crumbly. Set aside.



To make the cake, in a bowl, stir together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda & salt.

In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, sour cream & vanilla until well blended. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture & add the sour cream mixture.




Beat until smooth & fluffy, about 2 minutes. Pour the batter into the prepared pan & spread evenly. Cover evenly with the raspberries. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the berries.



Bake until the topping is golden brown & a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 38 to 42 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack & let cool for 20 minutes. Remove the sides of the springform pan.



Dust the cake with the confectioners' sugar & serve warm or at room temperature, cut into wedges. Makes one 10-inch cake.



{Food for Thought}

It was done at 40 minutes but I wanted the top to be a little more golden so I put it under the broiler for just 1 1/2 minutes, watching it the whole time. This cake was even better the next day. To be safe I stored it in the fridge but then took it out & served it at room temp. Also, I added more raspberries then what you see in the picture above. There was hardly any empty spaces once I was done.
