Do you notice that after cooking at home for so long you start to loose the taste for things bought already made from the store?  I really noticed it when I was craving some coffee cake and bought some at the store. I ended up not eating it! I was so mad. My husband ate it though, he was such a trooper *rolls eyes*

I find cooking feeds my soul, so I decided to make my own coffee cake since my soul was a little beat up after work.

I was going for something to the effect of the Entimens (sp?) cream cheese danish with some fruit. It turned out incredibly well, I had found the recipe sitting on my hard drive of things I need to eventually make.

It has a slightly sweet topping, with a layer of cream cheese and raspberry ooze (cooked raspberry and made thick) over a delicious cake. Oh my. Love. Especially warm. LOVE IT WARM. Because then the cream cheese and berries are all ooey-gooey and mouth watering.

Here is my issue though. My husband thinks its very tart, I think its overly sweet (very sensitive to sugar since I don't eat it often). What ways can I make it not AS sweet or not use quite as much sugar without using artificial sweeteners? No Stevia either.

Recipe on my blog:

I don't know about the sweetness issue... but I had to say, I love these types of cakes and yours looks amazingly delicious!
There was some store bought cake that I used to like and I can barely eat it anymore because I've gotten too used to home made. There was also a point when I made chocolate chip cookies pretty often and got so used to the ones I made that no chocolate chip cookie from the store has ever tasted the same... so I agree that when you start making something at home (and it tastes awesome), you start to lose taste for store bought!

I'm not too sure if this is answering your question, but I like to use orange juice with raspberries.  I find it cuts the tartness of the raspberries pretty well, but doesn't make things overly sweet. 

I'm definitely going to make this; thanks for the recipe!

How about Honey? again sweet but it's not sugar! we use it in our bread making instead of sugar, and I try to use it when baking to keep the sweetness but without using sugar.

I have to try this recipe though I love Entemanns and can't get them where I live yum yum yum.

no idea on your issues, I just wanted to add that since I started making everything at home and not buying sweets from the store I too have lost the taste for it. My FH has too! i was super surprised. One day I sent some cookies with him that were made from a package my grandma gave me and he came home with most of them uneaten! he said "you didn't make these did you?" lol
probably one of the happiest days of my life Smiley

but omg your picture is making me crave cream cheese mmm

I adore coffee cake, and yours look absolutely delicious. I don't know about the sweetness, I'm sensitive to sugar myself.

all of your tips are good, the recipe already has lemon juice in it so i dont know if i would add lemon too. one thing i noticed with having some this morning after it sitting all night is the tartness of the fruit mellowed. but its still sweet. I'll probably end up cutting back on the sugar to maybe 1/2 cup in the batter instead of 3/4. dang tasty though.
