almond and raisin coffee cake

based on wikipedia, Coffee cake is a common cake or sweetbread available in many countries. The term "coffee cake" can refer to any of the following:
  • A class of cakes intended to be eaten alongside coffee (for example, as part of a breakfast meal) or that may be eaten during a "coffee break" or offered to guests as a gesture of hospitality on or around a coffee table. Under this definition, a coffee cake does not necessarily contain coffee. They are typically single layer cakes that may be square or rectangular like a Stollen or loaf-shaped rectangular cakes, or they may be ring shaped. Coffee cakes may be flavored with cinnamon or other spices, seeds, nuts and fruits. These cakes sometimes have a crumbly or crumb topping called streusel and/or a light glaze drizzle. 
  • A cake, often sponge cake, which is made with coffee or has a coffee flavor.
