This recipe needs all 5 stars! Especially good since we grow our own raspberries. Freezes well, too.

My family really enjoyed this. I did make a few minor changes. I used 1/2 tsp each of vanilla and almond extracts and added a crumb topping (sugar, flour, butter) instead of almonds. I also omitted the icing. I'd like to try doubling it as it didn't last very long in a family of five.

Very moist. This is a good coffee cake if you are looking for a coffee cake that is not super sweet. The directions do not specify the amount of sliced almonds to put on the top of the cake. I used 1/3 c. and that covered the top nicely.
