Never underestimate the powers of a good coffee cake. This Triple Berry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake satisfies in all the ways: it warms your heart, tickles your taste buds and fills your belly. Each bite contains fresh berries, cheesecake filling and an exceedingly thick crumb topping. Serve with a cup of hot coffee or tea for the ultimate coffee cake experience.
I am putting to rest all of my past experiences with coffee cakes — the kind you buy at the store where the dough is spongy (and not in a good way), the cream cheese filling is thin and bland and the icing drizzle on top is pretty, sure, but cloyingly sweet… and the whole thing just isn’t very satisfying.
While I admit, yes, I loved these cakes for weekend breakfasts of my youth, I am (and my taste buds are) older and wiser and enlightened to the idea of what a coffee cake really should be — and it should always and forever henceforth be just like this Triple Cream Cheese Coffee Cake. And I’ll tell you why.5
