Something wrong with the recipe - batter quantities are insufficient. Not enough batter to cover the raspberries, so recommend doubling the batter or use a smaller cake pan. Added a little milk because batter was too thick to spread. Cake is still in the oven so will submit my opinion on results in another post.

I doubled the recipe and used a 9x12 pan. We had just picked fresh blueberries the day before, so I used blueberries instead of raspberries. I tripled the sour cream, too. I used evaporated milk for the icing and tripled that recipe. It was fantastic. I think it is the best coffee cake I have ever made. Thank you!

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 baked for 30 min and i thouhjt it was kind of dry. I thought the flavor was okay, The dough iis difficult to spread too.

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.

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 :)

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.
