How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, 1/3 cup sugar, and salt in a bowl; cut in margarine with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Reserve 1/2 cup flour mixture for topping; set aside.

Step 3

Combine remaining flour mixture, baking powder, and baking soda, and add sour cream, milk, extracts, and egg. Beat at medium speed of a mixer until blended. Spoon the batter into an 8-inch round cake pan coated with cooking spray.

Step 4

Combine cream cheese, 2 tablespoons sugar, and egg white; beat at medium speed until blended. Spread evenly over batter; dot with preserves. Top with raspberries. Combine the reserved 1/2 cup flour mixture and almonds. Sprinkle crumb mixture over raspberries. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until cake springs back when touched lightly in center. Cool on a wire rack.

This recipe was fantastic! I loved the flavor and it reminded me of a raspberry danish I have bought before. It puffs up beatifully, not flat like the photo. I will definitely make this again!

I'm really upset by this recipe...the taste was excellent (wow!!), but the texture was not what I was expecting. By the picture and the name, I was thinking that it would be somewhat dry and crumbly, but I ended up with a more clafoutis-like texture. I went over the recipe to make sure that I didn't make an error, but I couldn't figure out what went wrong. With the outsanding taste though, this recipe really does have potential.
