MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 19, 2013

"i was looking for a berry coffee cake and different recipes gave wildly different proportions... so I took a shot at this one and lucked out. The only change is I added 1 tsp almond extract and sprinkled the top with sliced almonds before baking. It didn't need any glaze; the almonds were really pretty already. Very moist but substantial; not crumbly or heavy. I am keeping this one!"

"Very moist and delicious. The recipe calls for fresh raspberries and since I could not find them, I used frozen (did have fresh blueberries). The result was just delicious. This would make a delightful brunch cake."
