Raspberry Filled Coffee Cake Heart



  • 1 envelope Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (100 degrees to 110 degrees F)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel
  • 3-1/4 to 3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Argo® Corn Starch
  • 1 cup fresh OR frozen raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon peel


  • 1/2 cup raspberries, crushed through a sieve to remove seeds
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  1. Combine yeast and warm water in a large bowl and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Add sugar, egg and lemon peel; mix well.
  3. Add 1 cup all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour and dry milk and beat well.
  4. Mix in salt and butter.
  5. Gradually stir in remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  6. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  7. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  8. Mix filling ingredients together in saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Cool.
  9. Punch down dough and roll out into a large rectangle, about 30 x 8-inches. Spoon filling down center of dough, about 2-1/2-inches wide. Cut 1-inch wide strips on each side of the dough (up to the filling) using a sharp knife. Fold side strips alternately over filling to form a “braid”. Form dough braid in a heart shape OR a circle on a large greased baking sheet.
  10. Let rise until doubled, about 30 to 40 minutes.
  11. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes, until golden brown.
  12. Cool for at least 30 minutes.
  13. Combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over coffee cake.
