Reviews for Glazed Raspberry Coffee Cake
"This is an outstanding cake and a great addition to a brunch menu. I used fresh raspberries (8 oz. container). The raspberries covered the entire top of the cake. I made the cake the evening before I served brunch then covered the cake with plastic wrap over night. When the cake was served I noted that the center of the cake had become too moist. Either I used too many berries or I should not have covered the cake tightly with plastic wrap. Next time I will stick with a measured one cup of berries rather than using a full 8 oz. pkg. Had I served the cake the day it was baked, the center may not have become too moist. If serving the same day it is baked I would again use the 8 oz. pkg. of berries! The cake has just the right amount of sweetness and I look forward to making it again."
"My family loves this recipe! I use vanilla yogurt and almond extract instead."
"turned out very good and just the right size to serve with brunch or dinner"
"This is indeed a very healthy recipe for anyone watching their sugar and/or weight. I had a hard time spreading my batter out in the pan & even getting it out of the pan. I didn't realize how thick the batter would be (mine was the consistency of pizza dough). However, this will be a great healthy batter for using in cobblers & pot pies and as a crumb topping. I think it might have turned out better if I had used a much smaller pan. Also, I didn't have plain yogurt so I used strawberry banana flavor. I'm sure that changed the flavor a lot but it was still good and the bananas in the yogurt made it smell great. I may try it again in a smaller pan or add a litte buttermilk."
"I made this, and I used a vanilla bean yogurt in the batter, as opposed to plain, and I used almond extract in the glaze. Very tasty indeed."
"This cake is excellent. I made it with fresh raspberries and left out the nuts and glaze and it was still great. I love the tartness of the raspberries against the sweetness of the cake!"
