This colorful crumb cake from Paula Eriksen has a moist, mouthwatering layer of fresh raspberries and is just as pretty as it is delicious. “It's an excellent recipe,” Paula writes from Palm Harbor, Florida. “I replaced some of the sugar with sugar substitute, some of the white flour with whole wheat, and went from whole milk and butter to skim and reduced-fat.
