Fresh Raspberry Cake

If you are looking for the perfect Mother’s Day cake or Birthday cake, this is it! Fresh raspberries are mixed into my favorite white cake recipe. Honestly, just the cake is delicious on its own, but is taken up a notch with the sweet cream cheese filling and raspberry jam buttercream frosting.

Buttery, Fresh Raspberry Cake

This is a great celebration cake. While it may be naturally pink, I’m pretty sure that any man would appreciate and devour a slice (or three). There’s just something about fresh berries in a cake. This is why I absolutely love cooking with the seasons. Using fresh ingredients to add flavor and textures almost always results in something spectacular.

Thankfully I live in California, where farm fresh produce is available year around. This year is going to be an epic year for berries and stone fruit as we have had more rain than we have had in the past decade. I’m currently planning my berry/stone fruit u-pick road trip and plan to be making a vast amount of new recipes and enough jam to last us another decade!
