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

"We have made this 10 -12 times either 8" or 9x13 double. This is one of the best recipes we make, and everyone wants the recipe. We don't split the batter because it is to thick in a greased pan and we do add a little almond extract to the almonds on top.If makes this cake you will fall in love with it to. JP"

"I wound up throwing this out. It tasted like a biscuit with fruit. The dough was also very hard to spread out. If I wanted biscuits, I would have made biscuits. Will never make this again."

"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."

"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."

"Loved this recipe!!! I mistakenly used a 9 inch pan which made a problem with not having enough dough. Next time I will follow the suggestion of another reviewer to add a little milk to the wet ingredients and put 2/3 of the dough in the pan then add the raspberries, then the rest of the dough. Oh, and use the right size pan!!!. It was very good!"

"I agree the batter is very thick and hard to spread - I ended up using most of it for the bottom and then spooning a tiny bit over the top, but it puffs up nicely regardless. Also very good, not too sweet...didn't last long in our house! Will be making again."
