MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 27, 2015

"I made a half recipe of this as there were only four of us. It was very tasty. I didn't have fresh berries, so I used frozen blueberries and frozen strawberries. I do think the strawberries kept the top from looking as nice as it should have. Every one enjoyed it, though. I also omitted the glaze."

"This cake turned out excellent. I did add the drizzle on top, but I think it was a bit too sweet. I would make it again and just add powdered sugar on top."

MY REVIEW

"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."
