Fresh Raspberry-Mousse Almond Crumb Cake

Makes: 8 servings, 1 piece each
Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes (plus 3 hours refrigeration)


  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 3/4 cup (3 1/2 ounces) fresh raspberries (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons (5/8 ounce) sliced almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or potato masher until crumbly. Reserve 1/2 cup for later use.

  3. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and jam; beat at low speed until blended. Spread evenly over batter. Top with reserved flour mixture, sprinkling of raspberries (optional) and almonds.

The Raspberry Almond Crumb Cake is amazing! I made it for Easter and everyone loved it. I added extra raspberry jam to the mixture of jam and cream cheese though. The recipe calls for more cream cheese than jam, but I think my method was way tastier!
