    LOVE this recipe. Have made it multiple times and have never been disappointed. I too use 1/3 less fat cream cheese and it tastes wonderful.

    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.

    Excellent, gourmet type of coffee cake. Easy to make but very impressive.

    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.
