You can use either fresh raspberries or fresh blackberries for this tender and delicious coffee cake. I prefer to toast my pecans in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes to really bring out their flavor.

I came up with this recipe as I was trying to find a way to use up some buttermilk, mango and raspberries I didn't want to go to waste! Feel free to substitute other fruits such as blueberries, peaches, apples or strawberries. No fruit on hand? This is just as delicious without!

I've always called this a buckle (I'm from the Midwest), but my friends here in California, say it's a 'coffee cake', but no matter the name they love it!

Peach Jam Coffee Cake

This coffee cake gets a double hit of peach flavor from using both jam and fresh fruit. For best results, use a good- quality peach jam (preferably homemade, if you have it). Make sure to cool this cake completely before slicing.

Peach Cobbler Coffee Cake

If you're looking for a fun way to use up a few ripe, summer peaches and you happen to enjoy having cake for breakfast, this recipe is for you. Fresh peach slices are simmered on the stovetop with brown sugar and cinnamon to form a gooey peach cobbler-inspired filling that you'll layer into rich sour cream coffee cake batter. The cake is then capped with an iconic cinnamon-sugar pecan crumble topping before baking into a coffee cake that's too good not to share. And you'll have plenty to go around, as this decadently dense, moist 9x13-inch coffee cake is perfect for a crowd.
