    Served this today for Senior citizens at our church. They LOVED it. I did use my big mixer rather than a hand mixer since I do not own one, and I wonder if the previous reviewer might not have mixed the batter long enough before putting into the pan and baking. I found that the batter was quite runny as it was being mixed, but got more cake-like as it was mixed longer. I substituted coconut oil for palm oil in the ganache, which worked just fine. Will definitely make this again!

    I made this and it was way too wet. I would need to adjust for this, but I followed all the steps and the batter seemed to runny and I even baked it longer to see if I could get out as much moisture as possible.

    I made my own ganache to use and the ganache was fine. But this batter seems to have too much liquid, I will need to modify this to get a better result.

    Make this cake today with fresh raspberries from our garden and it turned out beautifully! I added a little extra coconut flour and make sure I blended it well and the batter thickened up nicely. I used butter in the ganache because I couldn’t find palm shortening and it worked like a charm. Thanks for the recipe :)

    I made this cake today for a birthday. it turned out beautifully. I did use my standing mixer and the batter was not runny at all. The fresh raspberries really gave this a lot of flavor. I also like that it has no almond flour which is expensive lately. This is a great dessert for company as well. Thank you!!!!
