Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

This Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake coffee cake is a sure hit. It's perfect for a brunch or a special family gathering.  I used to prepare it for special occasions only. But now I try to bake it whenever I know overnight company is coming. It's always appreciated at breakfast the following morning.

There's basically a layer of cheesecake right in the middle! If you're not into almond extract, feel free to sub in vanilla. This is a wonderful alternative to those standard cinnamon-walnut-streusel coffee cake recipes.
