Fresh Raspberry-Sour Cream Crumb Cake

Crumbly sweet toppings are sprinkled as a final layer on top of coffee cakes or muffins before baking or are sometimes used as a filling. Another term for this common topping is streusel, a German word that means sprinkle. Such toppings consist of flour; sugar; sometimes spices, nuts or citrus zest; and butter. The butter, either melted or cut into pieces, is worked into the flour and other ingredients to form coarse crumbs. Streusel toppings bake into a crumbly or crusty texture, depending on the ingredients used.

Not for me

My crumb cake looks just like the picture, this should have been a clue as I see the texture of the cake looks dense and dry, maybe that was because I had to increase the oven temperature to 425 and bake another 30 min.after baking the recommended 30 min. at 350, in order to pass the toothpick test and to brown the wonderful topping that I will use on my Orange Muffins.
Pros: Appearance
Cons: Texture, instructions

Wonderful for a brunch

I tried this recipe many times. It is wonderful with sliced plums, apples, or peaches, or blueberries or raspberries!! I substituted plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream in the cake. The butter crumb topping is delicious. I also added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the crumbs. Makes a terrific cake to go with coffee.
The cakes with larger sliced fruits take a little longer in the oven (maybe 10-15 min more).
Pros: Appearance, Adaptable, Will Make Again

I have made this delicious cake 3 times. It is a bit tart so I sprinkled 1/4 cup sugar on the raspberries and let them sit to sweeten a bit. Baking time takes longer than the recommended time for the center to be done, about 20 more minutes (in my oven). The topping is perfect. It is a rich, moist cake that rises beautifully and tastes divine.
Pros: Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: cooking time not long enough
