Mulberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake


A couple of days back, I went to a friend's place to harvest some mulberries. I had so much fun ! She planted a few mulberry trees and it more than what she needed, so she allowed me to drop by at anytime whenever I need them. Looks like... I'm the VIP now ! haha..... Here's what I did with the rest of the mulberries.

Ingredients :
(A)
2 cups  all purpose flour
2/3 cup  sugar
1/2 tspn  baking powder
1/2 tspn  baking soda
a pinch of salt
230gm  cold butter, chopped

(B)
3/4 cup  heavy cream
1 egg
1 TB  lime juice & zest
1 tspn  vanilla essence

(C)
250gm   cream cheese
1/4 cup  sugar
1 egg
1 TB  lime juice & zest

Method :
(1) for ingredients (A), combine together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar & salt and mix well. Then rub in butter till everything well cooperated and reserved one cup for topping later on. The best is to keep the remaining mixture refrigerated.
(2) for ingredients (B), beat everything till well mix then fold into ingredient (A) mixture till everything well combined. The texture should be something like muffin mixture.
(3) now, place batter into a 7" tray lined with parchment paper, set aside.
(4) next, beat ingredient (C) till well cooperated then place it on top of the cake batter.
(5) throw in the mulberry and then top with the remaining crumb like mixture of ingredient (A).
(6) finally, bake at preheated oven 175'C for about 55 minutes. The top crust should be in nice golden brown colour.

The crust is simply tempting !.

Plus the layer of cheese.... absolutely something to die for !  The texture is really moist and not very sweet. Very addictive indeed. I'm sure you will love it too. Enjoy & have a great week ahead guys.
