Raspberry Ripple Crescent Coffee Cake Recipe

Berry Ripple Coffee Cake

This Raspberry Ripple Crescent Coffee Cake is so simple to make, guaranteed this wouldn’t be the only time you’ll make it.  I had a package of crescent rolls left over, so I decided to give it a try.  I couldn’t believe how great it was and simple.

Raspberry Ripple Crescent Coffee Cake Recipe

Berry Ripple Coffee Cake

¾ cup sugar

¼ cup margarine

2 eggs

¾ cup ground almonds

¼ cup flour

1 tsp. lemon or orange peel

1 (8 oz.) pkg. Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Rolls

¼ cup almond slices

Preheat oven to 375F.  Beat until smooth the sugar, margarine and eggs.  Add ground almonds, flour and lemon peel; mix well, then set aside.

Lay out the 8 crescents; put 1 teaspoon of strawberry on each.  Roll up each crescent, starting at the shortest side of triangle; rolling to the opposite point.

Place rolls in greased 9 inch pan in 2 circles; 5 rolls on the outside edge, then 3 in the center. Pour the ground almonds mixture over the rolls, then top with sliced almonds.

Bake on 375F. for 25 minutes; after 15 minutes put foil on top of pan; after it baked for a total of 25 minutes, take foil off.  Then bake 10 minutes longer.
