Coffee and cake are like a wink and a smile - you'll take one without the other but given the choice, you want the pair. Raspberries and almonds lift this coffee cake to a tart and nutty place. The recipe doubles easily in a 9x13 pan to accommodate all those wanting a little bit more. —Debbie Johnson, Centertown, Missouri

I Almost threw the batter away when I saw how thick it was. Like playdough, so I added enough milk to loosen mixture to a cake batter consistancy. Worked great! Tasted great, not too sweet.

Made this for Mother's day brunch but unfortunately can't rate it because the dog ate it off the counter! She seemed to think it was very delicious :)

I've actually made this one several times and while the taste is very good, the "batter" isn't a batter at's a thick dough that doesn't spread easily and is actually a pain in the tush to work with. My search for a quick, easy, and tasty fruit coffee cake continues.

Very good. Instead of putting the dough in the pan and then trying to spread it around the pan; I took some dough, flattened it into strips by pulling on it with my hands before laying it into the pan. I then put the strips side by side in the pan. This worked well to get the dough to cover the entire pan for me.
