WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE RASPBERRY SOUR CREAM COFFEE CAKE

You need the following ingredients to make this vegan raspberry coffee cake (the exact measurements are in the recipe card below):

  • All-purpose flour – keeps the cake light and fluffy because of its fine texture. Sift the flour to avoid lumps in the batter.
  • Brown sugar – adds caramel flavor to the streusel. You can substitute it for coconut sugar.
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Sea salt – balances the sweetness.
  • Vegan butter – cut the butter into little chunks to make it easier to combine. Make sure the butter is cold. Use vegan butter with 75-80% fat.
  • Baking powder and baking soda – leaven the cake batter.
  • Granulated sugar
  • Sunflower oil – improves the texture and makes the cake moist.
  • Vegan sour cream – adds moisture to a batter and makes the cake super moist. Make sure it has room temperature. You can substitute it for vegan plant-based yogurt, such as coconut yogurt.
  • Unsweetened almond milk – Use any plant-based milk of your choice, such as oat, soy, or cashew milk. Make sure it has room temperature.
  • Apple cider vinegar – helps to activate the baking soda. You can use lemon juice instead.
  • Pure vanilla extract – use good-quality vanilla extract.
  • Raspberry jam – makes the middle layer of the coffee cake.
  • Raspberries – use frozen or fresh raspberries. If using frozen, don’t thaw them.
  • Powdered sugar – To avoid lumps, sift the sugar.
