Coffee Cake

I got this recipe from my local newspaper. It calls for any fruit and i just so happened to have blackberries from my mom's garden that i had frozen so that's what i used. I will make this again and again! and side note...don't do what i did and read the instructions wrong.i added 1 tablespoon of almond flavoring and 1 1/2 tablespoon of salt in my first batch. can you imagine what that tasted like?? blah!!! that first cake went right in the trash :)

1/2 cup butter, softened

8 oz cream cheese

1 tsp almond flavoring

2 cups sugar

4 eggs

1 1/2 cup flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 3/4 cup fruit (blackerries, bluberries etc..)tossed in 1 tblsp flour and 2 tbslp sugar

Lemon glaze:

2 cups powdered sugar

2 tbsp lemon juice
