What a pretty, dainty little cake! I prepared this exactly as written, using an 8" springform pan. No need to change a thing as it is simply perfect as is. It's moist and flavorful with a just right sweetness. The raspberry filling and the topping both make this especially pretty. Hubby was going to take this to the office in the morning for his staff but, um...oh well, at least there's a big piece left for him to take for himself! Hmmm, and he always said he doesn't care for coffeecakes...

I'm not feeling the love! I followed the recipe exactly and it didn't turn out at all. The batter was very difficult to work with. The end product was unevenly cooked and didn't taste well.

This is my favorite recipe from this site. I have made it several times. I do agree with other reviewers that it is best to double it. When I do, I use a 9 inch pan. It fills in perfectly. Though the recipe is good with frozen berries, it is BEST with fresh ones. If you do use frozen make sure to drain off as much liquid as possible to avoid a runny mess.

Wow. What an amazing cake. And it's super-easy too: all you need are a few bowls and a big wooden spoon; no need for your mixer. And the taste is heavenly. I skipped the glaze given in this recipe and instead came up with my own chocolate glaze: 2 ounces Belgian dark chocolate and 4 ounces Belgian milk chocolate melted in the microwave, with 1/2 cup hot whipping cream, all whisked briskly together with a fork. The combination of raspberry, almond and chocolate was heavenly. Possibly the best coffee cake I've ever made.

This recipe was incredibly easy and went over fabulously well. Doubled the recipe and used a bundt pan - same cooking time. Roasted 1/2 of the almonds to put on top when icing. Would definitely make again.

This was a great cake! I used almond extract instead of vanilla & raspberry yogurt instead of sour cream & it turned out wonderful. Can't wait to make it again!!

Excellent! Thanks for such a wonderful recipe. I made this twice: once for Mother's Day and for a potluck. I was asked to make it again because it was that good! The first time, the cake didn't even last a day before getting gobbled up. When making this second recipe, I used a springform pan rather than a plain 8-inch pan like I did the first time. Much easier to get the cake out of the pan, but make sure the pan is securely set because raspberry juice will drip out onto the oven floor. And make sure you have enough cooking spray in the pan so that cake will be easy to remove. The first version I made did not have glaze, and we loved it regardless. The second version I made did have glaze. I didn't care much for the glaze; it was so sweet! I think this cake stands out on its own without it! Still, your mileage may vary. I used frozen natural raspberries. They work great. But make sure they're thawed before measuring them out. And be sure to drain the juice, too. Also, in both recipes, I followed the other reviewers' advice and doubled the recipe. It was very difficult to spread out the batter into the pan the first time. The second time, I added a few tablespoons of milk, and it made quite a difference! Don't worry if you don't have enough batter to spread out on top. The almonds will cover the cake nicely.

YUMM...I used previous recommendations in preparation. I multiplied the recipe by 1.5 (I think doubling it would have overflowed my 8 inch cake pan), added 2 tablespoons of skim milk to wet ingredients, spread 2/3 of batter, then raspberries, then final 1/3 of batter, and omitted the frosting. I did not have sliced almonds, but I did have whole almonds, so I ground them pretty fine in a coffee grinder and sprinkled them on top, PERFECT! Really looked like a crumb top! I will definitely make this one again, moist, sweet, and lovely.
