I made this for the first time and it was really good. I have had this recipe for a long time and just never got around to making it ..boy am I glad I finally did. It would be great with white chocolate as well.
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup fresh raspberries
heat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x9x2 inch square pan (I used a 10x7 oblong and it worked well) Beat the sugar and butter till light and fluffy add egg and vanilla then beat till well mixed. Mix dry ingredients together and add alternately with the milk mix about 2 minutes
Now prepare the Streusel
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter (room temperature)
1/3 cup slivered almonds roasted
Mix flour and sugar together , cut in the butter and stir in the almonds.
Put half the cake batter in well greased pan top with half of the streusel,sprinkle half the berries ,chocolate and almonds, add the rest of the batter and then the streusel and then the rest of the berries, chocolate and almonds. You can add a few more berries, chocolate chips or almonds to the top to make it look pretty if you like...just not to many.Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
It would also be great to substiute white chocolate and maybe add a little drizzle to the top when done baking. I will be playing around with this recipe to see what other berries and combinations I might use.
NOTE: I only had sliced almonds and they were great on the top but didn't like the texture throughout the cake so the slivered would be better
