Raisin Coffee Cake

  • 1 and 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 3/4 cup milk

  • 1/3 cup butter - melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2/3 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup additional sugar

I was pleased with how this coffee cake turned out. It had a moist interior. The spices complemented the raisins so the flavor was similar to a nice raisin bread. Next time I make it, I'll likely increase the sugar to 3/4 cup and the butter to 1/2 cup. It was sweet and lovely, but not quite as indulgent as I prefer. But all in all, I was pretty happy with this coffee cake. (This recipe was submitted in 2003. It was tested and photographed in May 2016.)

How To Make A Raisin Coffee Cake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, 2/3 cup sugar, baking powder, salt and allspice. Next, add the milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla. Mix well, stirring in the raisins as you do so.

Turn into a greased and floured 8-inch layer cake pan.

Mix together 1/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the top of the cake.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.

Cooking Note From Mr Breakfast

I made a vanilla glaze to drizzle over the baked and cooled coffee cake. I whisked together about 1/2 cup powdered sugar with 2 Tablespoons milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Instead of an 8-inch cake pan, I used a 7 x 4 1/2-inch pan and a 4-inch round pan to make 2 smaller coffee cakes. My cooking time was 26 minutes.
