This is a wonderful dessert or brunch cake, and easier to make than people will ever know, unless you tell em. :)

Top Review by Kathy

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!
