Could raisins or other dried or candies fruits be added to the dough? If so, how much and would it alter baking time?

Hi Elizabeth,
Yes. If you are using dried fruits, it shouldn’t alter the bake time. Here’s another coffee cake recipe that has fruit added to the topping: https://redstaryeast.com/recipes/crunchy-cinnamon-coffee-cake/
Happy baking!
