Better than 5 stars! Moist, packed with flavor, and a huge "love it" from my hubby. The measurement for flour is 3-4 cups. I used 3 and that was perfect for high altitude (6200 ft). Next time I will try not adding the raspberries to the batter; but instead, layer the raspberries on top of the first layer of batter, then top with the filling, etc. A huge thank you for posting this recipe!

This is absolutely delicious, with an intense raspberry aroma and flavor. I used 3 cups of flour, and it raised up nicely in my 9 X 13 pyrex dish. I will definitely make this one again, and perhaps try some other types of berries (blueberries, blackberries...).

This cake made a great addition to my holiday treat tray. I used low fat/low cal cream cheese, some splenda in place of the sugaer, apple sauce in place of some of the fats, and skim milk. This cake was light and fluffy and absolutley tasty!
