Gooey Raspberry Coffee Cake Bars


I’m sort of obsessed with these Gooey Raspberry Coffee Cake Bars.

They have a little bit of everything that I love in a dessert- Gooey Cake, Raspberries, White Chocolate, and a delicious Brown Sugar Coffee Crumb topping.

Pure. Heaven.

Gooey Raspberry Coffee Cake Bars

I love gooey cake bars because they are so easy to make, and completely customizable! I’ve made Gooey Samoa Cake Bars,  Gooey Rolo Cake Bars, and even Gooey Hot Chocolate Cake Bars (yum!).

I figured it was about time to make a bar with some fruit inside, cause that’s healthier… right?! 😉

I scored an awesome deal on a couple packages of frozen raspberries the other day, and they were just begging to be put into a decadent dessert like this. Brilliant decision. The raspberries added the perfect balance of tartness to these soft and gooey bars.

I can’t decide which part I like more… the tender crust, the fruity filling, or the crumbly brown sugar topping.

They all go so perfectly together. :)

These bars go quickly, so you might want to make a double batch.

Gooey Raspberry Coffee Cake Bars
  • 1 box yellow cake mix (just the mix)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ¼ cup butter, cold (cut into small pieces)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  1. In a large bowl combine the cake mix, egg and melted butter with a sturdy wooden spoon until it becomes a soft dough. Use half of the dough for the crust, and press it into the bottom of the baking pan.
  1. Spread the raspberries and white chocolate chips evenly over the crust. Drizzle with the sweetened condensed milk.
  2. Use the remaining half of the crust to cover the raspberry filling, as best you can. (separate the dough into small disk shapes and lay on top of the raspberries)
  1. In a bowl combine the ingredients for the topping. Use your hands to squish the topping together, until it becomes a crumbly, coarse mixture. Sprinkle on top of the cake bars.
  2. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the center is only slightly jiggly. Let cool completely before lifting the cake bars out of the pan. Cut into squares. The bars should still have a gooey texture to them. Enjoy!
