Raspberry Cake With Buttercream Icing

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Truffle Lady-46

My husband brought this recipe home from a co-worker years ago. Although a basic recipe, this cake is always a hit wherever I bring it. Even those who do not like raspberries, comment on how they like this cake much to their surprise. I also make it with frozen raspberries not thawed. I use my own icing recipe, which is included. I prefer to use butter.

I didn't have raspberries; had a bag of mixed berries in the freezer so used mixed instead. Delicious!!
