How do you like this crumb cake with the pretty pink glaze?

Is it weird that I’m kinda infatuated with it? I just love the look so much, especially with Mother’s Day right around the corner.

I would be a pretty happy mama if this apple raspberry crumb cake showed up on a tray with a hot cup of coffee on Mother’s Day morning. Can you even think of a nicer way to start the day? I sure can’t.

The apples are actually the best part. Closely followed by the crumb topping, which has just the slightest hint of lemon. The raspberries are like the icing on the cake, lending that gorgeous pink color and a little bright hit of tangy sweetness. Oh and let’s not forget the cake itself! You can never go wrong with a sour cream coffee cake- so moist and tender!

Best part of all, if you have little ones and the idea of making breakfast in bed for mom sounds like a recipe for disaster, is this cake can totally be done ahead. Whip it up the night before, and mom can actually wake up to a relatively clean kitchen!
