One of my mother's friends used to bring this over at the holidays, and it never lasted long. With the tangy raspberry filling, tender cake and crunchy topping, it has become a favorite at our house. -Amy Mitchell, Sabetha, Kansas

"This cake was excellent! I did add a splash of milk to the batter after reading reviews and my cake was moist and delicious. I also added the cinnamon and nutmeg to the crumb topping since my family can not eat nuts and that did the trick. I also made this with strawberry and rhubarb filling. Same directions as the raspberries just used the strawberries and rhubarb instead. That as well was delicious. My family said it was the best coffee cake ever! They can't wait for more LOL"

"Wonderful! The "batter will be stiff" is an understatement. You can't even describe it as "batter", it is more like clumps of dough. I kept checking the instructions thinking I forgot to add some liquid. I used the correct pan and had to cook it about 52 minutes just like another reader noted. Will make again but will use a food processor to make things easier."

"First time I've made this recipe as I couldn't find the one I usually use. I could tell from the recipe that this was going to be bland. It was with a very dense and dry crumb. Next time, I'll change out the AP flour for cake flour to lighten this one up and also add some cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves to the streusel. The raspberry was too sweet so I suggest cutting down the sugar from 1 cup to perhaps 3/4.

All in all though a nice coffee cake with tea or coffee."

"My kids & granddaughter loves, loves, loves anything with raspberries. If I buy a pint from the grocery, its gone the same day! This coffee cake is the same. When I make it, I'm lucky if I get a piece for myself!"

"this is suspiciously close to a recipe of mine that was originally published in a 1990 issue of Country Woman. I've received many honors with my recipe, even years after it was published."
