Recipe by Mimi in Maine

I don't know where this originated, but the name not only sounds elegant, but tastes elegant with the jam and white cake and yummy frosting. A friend made these for a bridal shower once and I have been making them ever since for special occasions. It calls for a pie crust and I make my own, but you can buy one if you choose. I use a good Raspberry Jam (Smuckers). They taste so good and are pretty with the red jam and white cake and fluffy frosting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make the crust; mix well and roll out the pie crust to cover a large cookie sheet making a 1" edge.
  2. Make holes all over the crust with a fork.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees till done; cool.
  4. Spread the jar of raspberry jam evenly over the crust.
  5. Bake the cake mix according to directions on the box or using the above measurements (I had to list the ingredients on the box in order to post).
  6. Pour batter over the jam and bake at 350 degrees until cake is done to the test.
  7. FROSTING: Put everything in a mixing bowl starting with 2 cups sugar and adding more sugar if you need it. Whip till light and fluffy. Frost and enjoy.
