Once again my trusty AWW bible, Bake, has provided me with a delicious, easy, can’t-stuff-it-up cake. I present the buttery and moreish raspberry butter cake that can be made with fresh or frozen berries [I always use frozen but never defrost them before use].

Thank you to the wonderfully wonderful Anna Warr for the gorgeous photos [http://www.facebook.com/AnnaWarrPhotography]

GATHER:

125g diced butter, softened

3/4 cup caster sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups self-raising flour, sifted 

1/2 cup milk

3/4 cup raspberries

LET’S GET TO IT:

Preheat oven to 180C and grease and line a round 20cm cake tin.

Butter butter and sugar in bowl of electric mixer until light and fluffy and then beat in eggs one at a time.

Stir in milk and flour in two batches.

Fold in 1/4 cup raspeberries.

Spread 3/4 of cake mix into pan and sprinkle with remaining berries then spread remainder of batter over the top.

Bake for between 45-60 mins [depending on oven]. Stand cake in pan 5 minutes, turn top side up onto wire rcak.

When cold sprinkle with sifted icing sugar and decorate with a few extra berries.

    I love anything with fresh raspberries. It’s my favorite fruit. Such a nice texture with the cake, too. YUM!!

      I agree – I love the squish of a berry against the crumb of a cake. Thanks for checking out my blog :)

    That looks delicious – now the only thing missing is chocolate ;-)

    This cake looks so delicious and simple, I’m definitely going to give it a try. My mother-in-law has a bunch of AWW magazines from the 80s that she still uses!

    • thehungrymum May 14, 2012 at 1:26 am #

      Those AWW recipes are the best! There are some crackers from the 80s!
