Crumb-Topped Raspberry Coffee Cake

Raspberries are abundant at our summer home nearby Aziscohos Lake. So I developed this recipe to share the bounty with our guests. The pretty crumb-topped cake's fruity flavor really shines through. —Marian Cummings, West Paris, Maine

    I've made this recipe dozens of times. Everybody loves it. Cut back a bit on the sugar or use a little extra fruit in the filling. Use a food processor to make the crumb topping and it will look like the picture.

    Overall I thought this was too dry. And the raspberry filling too sweet. I'd cut the sugar for sure. And the topping didn't look like the picture.

    Shortcut:Use E.D. Smith (3times fruit/half the sugar) preserves instead of raspberry filling (Canadian).Or a good LOW sugar preserve.Even better.Even faster. Great recipe for holiday guests breakfast treat with coffee.
