"This is really good! Will only use a teaspoon of almond extract next time but it is really good the way it was. Used light cream cheese as that is what I had on hand. Everyone loved it so will serve it again."

"Delicious. I made this then froze it right away and pulled it out a few weeks later when unexpected guests arrived. The secret is using the best quality raspberry jam you can find."

"I like this recipe mostly because I adore crumb topping. See mine pictured on my page. I use parchment on the bottom of the spring form pan which works beautifully. Don't care for cooked jam so I use real raspberries or blueberries. Blueberry is my favorite. In a small heavy saucepan I boil 1 cup frozen raspberries or blueberries with sugar (to taste) and a couple Tbs of water. When it reduces and cools I spoon it over the cream cheese mixture. I also like to use a lot of icing on mine. :) It went over big at church fellowship. I like this cake above all store bought raspberry coffee cakes."

"This is an easy, great tasting recipe! My only problem was that the raspberry jam sunk in the cream cheese mixture. Any suggestions?"
