This turned out SO delicious, especially right out of the oven! The raspberry filling was wonderful! I made the recipe exactly as written, with the mace and all. Mace really has a very nice flavor, and I thought it added nicely. I can see using nutmeg as a substitute though - mace has that "pound cake" flavor though, and it really complimented the raspberries and the crumb topping. Next time I would add more sliced almonds - they were really good. The only thing I did differently was to put it in a heart-shaped pan (for Valentine's Day) instead of a 13x9in pan. I could not contain the filling to within a 1 in. border, so I just dumped it all in, then topped with the rest of the batter and the crumb topping. The cake overflowed, but I had a rimmed baking sheet underneath to catch it. I think it would have been fine in a 13x9in. I also had to bake it way longer, I think more like an hour and a half. Probably b/c it was thicker. But, other than the overflow, it turned out perfect, nice and golden, and the filling was nice and oozy. Definitely a do-again!
