Well, due to a bad head cold my scholoktoberfest kickoff is going to have to wait for later in the week. I’m just not up to turnin’ out torten at the moment. But because I couldn’t let a nice batch of raspberries go bad, I did manage to put this coffeecake together for Sunday brunch. It’s delicious and so easy you can stir it up under the influence of cold medicine.

Spoon the dough into the pan and spread it around. Use a spoon to push it up the sides of the pan, you need to leave a large shallow well in the middle for the cream cheese filling.

Stir together the cream cheese, egg and sugar until smooth. Pour it into the pan.
