Bayfield Wisconsin is known for its orchards and wonderful fruits, including its raspberries. The growing season is short in Northern Wisconsin so when summer arrives, we pack in as much fresh local fruit as possible, and raspberries are no exception. We love the raspberries from North Wind Organic Farm. We buy flats and flats of them so we have plenty to served to our guests in season and freeze the rest to be enjoyed year round.
Taste of Home has a wonderful Raspberry Coffee Cake recipe that we have incorporated into our breakfast line up. It works well with fresh or frozen raspberries allowing us to serve this mouth-watering coffee cake anytime of the year. We tend to use a little less sugar than most recipes call for, especially when using fresh local fruits as we like the fruit to shine. We have modified this recipe accordingly and have added our own cream cheese drizzle which we think plays well with the raspberries. We hope you think so too. Enjoy!
