Razzle-Dazzle Raspberry Cake


When I saw Raspberries on sale at Trader Joes this last week I thought what a great way to make a cake for a neighbor who is not feeling too hot going through treatments.  This cake falls in perfectly with my philospophy:

Make is simple

Make it quick

Throw in some healthy ingredients!


Serves 8-10


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 Tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup sugar

1/3 cup butter, softened

1 egg

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 cup milk

3 cups fresh raspberries


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to cream together butter, egg, sugar, vanilla and milk. In a separate bowl add flour, salt, and baking powder. Spoon dry ingredients into wet and mix until dry ingredients are moistened.


Spray a cheesecake pan (a round pan with removable sides- a 13×9″ cake pan will work as well) lightly with baking spray. Spoon batter into pan and cover the top of the cake evenly with raspberries.


Bake for 35-45 minutes (somewhat dependent on pan), or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Allow to cool for 10 minutes and serve!


Thumbs up… Yes, It’s dinner party worthy especially with a scoop of frozen vanilla yogurt!
