Print Recipe

We've got the perfect treat to accompany that first cup of coffee in the morning. It's a delightfully dense coffee cake with a layer of raspberry jam (or whatever flavor you'd like!) and the most delicious, sweet (optional almond) crumble on top. We don't know which you'll be savoring more, that first cup of coffee on a busy morning or our sweet, tart raspberry coffee cake. 



    Jam Layer

    • 15 ounces raspberry jam (or flavor of your choice) 


    • 3/4 cup Otto’s Naturals - Cassava Flour
    • ⅓ cup cane sugar or ½ cup coconut sugar*
    • 1 stick (8 Tablespoons) butter, melted 
    • ½ cup almonds, sliced (optional for nut-free) 



      1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. 
      2. Line a 9x13-inch baking sheet with parchment paper. 
      3. Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Add eggs and vanilla extract and continue to beat on medium speed until the batter is smooth and creamy.
      4. Add cassava flour, baking powder, and salt and beat until all of the ingredients have been well combined. The batter should be thick and creamy. Pour the batter onto the baking sheet and spread it evenly. Spread your favorite preserve on top of the batter. Set aside.


        1. Combine flour, sugar, and melted butter. Use a hand mixer to combine until the dough turns into crumbs
        2. Layer the sweet crumb topping over the jam spread and top with sliced almonds. 
        3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. 
        4. Insert a toothpick to make sure the cake has fully baked.

        *If using coconut sugar, we strongly recommend using the amount suggested and not reducing it. Coconut sugar is less dense than regular sugar, so while you will use more volume, the weight is actually the same using the given measurements. Using less volume will result in a very dry cake, as the sugar adds much of the moisture for this particular recipe.

        Coconut sugar will make a darker (still scrumptious) cake!

        How to store coffee cake

        This streusel-topped coffee cake will keep for up to 3 days in an airtight container, without refrigeration. However, it will last longer - up to a week - in the refrigerator.

        What does "streusel" mean in cooking?

        Streusel is a crumbly topping or filling made from fat, flour, sugar, and often cinnamon.  But what does it mean when we say Streusel Coffee Cake?  It only means that there’s more cake than streusel topping.  Regardless of how you like your coffee cake, this recipe is absolutely delicious!
