Fresh berries are a great way to remind us that spring and summer will arrive, no matter how many more times we need to shovel our driveways.

Fresh Berry Coffeecake

Servings: 6 to 8

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup small curd Cottage Cheese
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/3 cups light brown sugar, packed and divided
2 eggs
Zest of one orange
1 cup mixed fresh berries*
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350F. Butter a 10-inch angel food pan; set aside.

In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and baking soda; set aside. In another small bowl, combine Cottage Cheese and vanilla; set aside.

In medium bowl, cream butter and 1 cup brown sugar with electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each. Add zest; mix. Gradually add flour mixture, alternating with Cottage Cheese mixture, ending with flour; mix well. Spread half of batter in bottom of pan. Cover with berries. Combine 1/3 cup brown sugar, cinnamon and almonds. Sprinkle half over berries. Spread remaining batter over top and sprinkle with remaining brown sugar mixture.

Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pan 15 to 20 minutes; remove outer ring, and cool completely. Once cool, remove inner ring and serve.

*Chop strawberries, or use whole blueberries or raspberries. You may also use other types of fresh fruit in place of berries, like peaches or apples.
