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!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
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!
