Creamcheese Coffee Cake with fruit preserves.

Last night, I made our new favorite breakfast, a cream cheese coffee cake. I’ve made it with blackberry and now blueberry jelly. It’s delicious. I highly recommend it.

  • 4oz reduced fat cream cheese (not lowfat)
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/4 c butter, softened
  • 7/8 c all purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 c milk (I used 2%)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 c blackberry, raspberry, or blueberry preserves.

1. Grease and flour a loaf pan. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, butter until fluffy. Add rest of ingredients (except preserves) and beat 2 minutes.
2. Spread batter in a pan. Spoon preserves and marble with a knife.
3. Bake for 25-35 minutes. Cool. (optionally top with powdered sugar)
