Eden Atkerson's dessert was so delightful that we decided to trim it down a bit so everyone could enjoy it…even if they were watching their weight. Makeover Lemon Raspberry Cake has 184 fewer calories, 50% less fat and nearly half the cholesterol of the original that Eden sent from Atlanta, Georgia.
Nuts and chocolate chips add fun flavor in this cake that feeds a crowd. And there's so much delicious browned butter drizzle, you'll wonder how this one is light; but it is! Vicki Raatz - Waterloo, Wisconsin
A dear friend of mine gave me this recipe, and I make it often, especially for potlucks. Sometimes I make it ahead, freeze the cake and then frost it before the party. —Merrill Powers, Spearville, Kansas
I remember my Aunt Murna telling me she made this cake often when she was a young girl. Through the years, she made improvements to it, and her cake become a real family favorite. It has been a popular staple at our reunions.

This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law, who got it from her mother-in-law. Although Grandma Tucker has been gone for years now, her wonderful cake brings back sweet memories.
