If you are looking for ways to switch up this fruit-filled cream cheese coffee cake recipe, you’re in the right place. Here are some delicious substitutions and variations that will allow you to customize this recipe to suit your preferences.

Instead of raspberry cream cheese, try using any other flavor of cream cheese such as cherry or mixed berry cream cheese. You can also add additional flavors by adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract or a pinch of cinnamon to the cream cheese mixture.

Tips for Perfect Results

We all want our baked goods to come out perfect, don’t we? Here are some tips to ensure your fruit-filled cream cheese coffee cake recipe turns out moist, buttery, and bursting with flavor.

Firstly, it’s crucial to use ingredients that are at room temperature. Leave them on the countertop for a while before beginning the recipe. Cold ingredients won’t mix well and can negatively affect the texture of the coffee cake.

Secondly, when making the crumb or streusel topping, consider using cold butter or margarine. This will produce chunky bits of crusty goodness on top of your cake when baked.

Thirdly, when mixing the cream cheese filling, use an electric mixer at medium speed until it becomes smooth and creamy. You don’t want any lumps in your filling as they can become unpleasant when cooked.

Fourthly, when assembling the cake layers for baking, make sure to add a ½ inch layer of the filling evenly. This will make sure that each slice of the cake has a fruity-cheesy bite.

Fifthly, if you’re using juicy fruit fillings like strawberries or raspberries, consider adding a bit more Bisquick baking mix to counteract their moisture content. A good rule of thumb is 1/4 cup additional baking mix per 2 cups of fruit filling.

Lastly, before cutting into the cake after it’s finished baking, be sure it has completely cooled down. This will prevent any crumbling or breaking apart.

Follow these tips carefully for an unforgettable fruit-filled cream cheese coffee cake experience!

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this Fruit Filled Cream Cheese Coffee Cake Recipe is truly extraordinary. It’s a dessert that will win the hearts of all those who try it. The combination of the creamy cheesecake filling, juicy summer berries, and crunchy streusel topping make it a dessert worthy of any special occasion or even just an indulgent weekend treat.

Fruit Filled Cream Cheese Coffee Cake Recipe

I found this recipe in a church cookbook and made a couple of changes to it. It uses bisquick baking mix and other ingredients that I always have on hand. You can choose any pie filling you want. The dough can be tricky to work with so have yourself a nice large, clean area and flour handy to help with the rolling process.

  • 2 cups Bisquick baking mix
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup margarine or 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pie filling
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons sugar


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Cut the cream cheese and margarine into the bisquick until crumbly.
  • Blend in milk until it makes a dough.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and kneed 8 to 10 times. Form dough into a fat rectangle shape.
  • Using a rolling pin, begin to roll out the dough into a 12 x 8 inch rectangle. You may need to use flour under and on top several times to keep the dough from sticking.
  • Lift dough onto a greased baking sheet.
  • Spread a can of pie filling of your choice down the center of the dough.
  • With a knife, cut strips about 1 inch apart down the sides. Fold the strips up and over the fruit filling at an angle.
  • Mix the cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle on the top evenly.
  • Place in the preheated oven on the center rack. Bake for 15 - 17 minutes.
  • Be sure and check it at about 8 minutes to see if the top is browning. If it has, place a piece of foil, lightly on top to prevent burning.
  • You can also skip the cinnamon/sugar step and drizzle with a glaze instead.
