Downeast Raspberry Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Kim127

Nice light cake topped with fresh raspberries. The glaze is a must! Note that the recipe calls for 3 tablespoons of heavy cream for the glaze, I added an extra couple of tablespoons or so in order to get the glaze to a loose enough consistancy to spread. This cake is also really great with Raspberry Sauce With a Twist by Culinary Explorer. The cookbook (MerryMeeting Merry Eating) recommends this for picnics as it travels well. I can't say for sure, the cake never made it out of the kitchen. Enjoy!

Perfect cake! Light and tasty cake with the fresh berries is a perfect combination. I made it with the raspberries, but think I'm going to try with the large bounty of blueberries I have soon. Love it!
