Jamming Coffee Cake

I reimagined this raspberry jam coffee cake from Kleinworth Company. I think the streusel is the best part, so I pretty much doubled it and played with the method a bit. Same with the cake. This was a solid recipe for sure. Huge thanks.


For the Streusel

227g unsalted butter, soft but not melted
270g flour 
135g brown sugar
135g granulated sugar
4 tsp ground cinnamon

2 large eggs, room temp
2 tsp vanilla extract
60 grams sour cream
120 grams buttermilk
160 grams fruit preserves (1/2 cup)
