Baking is my love language. I sometimes have a hard time picking out gifts but I do make it a point to bake something for my family and friends on their birthdays or for special occasions.
RASPBERRY CREAM CHEESE COFFEE CAKE
Since Mother’s Day is fast approaching, I texted my mom and asked her which flavors she’d like in a baked good. I thought she was being sarcastic when she said “peanut butter and chocolate” because those are MY favorite flavors and what I typically lean towards.
She also mentioned cream cheese and fruit so I did some research and came up with this Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake.
When I was baking it, I didn’t even think I was going to like it because seriously, if it’s not chocolate and/or peanut butter flavored, I usually skip it. But, I decided to be an adult and try this cake and let me tell you, I can’t stop eating it. It’s the best thing I’ve baked in awhile.
TOOLS FOUND ON AMAZON TO HELP YOU
- Mixing Bowls – I love the grippy bottoms on these.
- Pastry Cutter – You’ll use a pastry cutter to incorporate the cold butter into the dry ingredients.
- 9×13 Baking Dish – I have a couple of these and love them because they come with a lid for storing leftovers.
HOW TO STORE IT
Store leftovers covered in an airtight container. Because of the cream cheese layer, I like to store it in the fridge. It is best within 4-5 days.

In addition to this cake, I packed up a Hallmark card and this Tree of Life necklace from Amazon, and Julia and I spent the day with my mom and grandma for a semi-early Mother’s Day celebration.
Sometimes when I’m sitting in a room with the four of us it blows my mind to see and think of four generations. Julia and I are so fortunate to have them in our lives.
I would be lost without my family. My mom quit her job after I had Julia so that she could watch her while I work. I go to her house for lunch every day so I can spend some time with both of them and many days my grandma is there, too. I’m so fortunate to have that set-up.
Hopefully this necklace is a reminder to my mom of how much I appreciate her and everything she does for our family.
