Does This Raspberry Coffee Cake Need a Glaze?

With the streusel topping on this coffee cake, I would not normally add a glaze. However, if you want to add one, making a powdered sugar glaze is an easy option.

Can I Use Raspberry Jam Instead of Fresh Raspberries?

If you wanted to use jam instead of the fresh raspberries. It will change the consistency slightly but it is not a bad change. This might be a fun way to change up the recipe.  Just follow the same measurements and instructions when adding the different fruit or jam.
