This is the cake I always made for my youngest daughter's birthday when she was growing up. I used to frost it with white fluffy frosting, sprinkle it with shredded coconut and decorate it with a big red ribbon, like a Fluffy White Christmas Wreath, as she had a Christmas birthday. I lost my copy of the recipe and have been looking for it for years and was delighted to finally find it. I am posting it here so I never lose it again! It is a delicious cake with a lovely raspberry filling.
- 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box yellow cake mix
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 2 eggs
- 1 (3 ounce) box raspberry gelatin powder
- Combine cake mix, sour cream, water and eggs in large bowl.
- Blend, then beat at medium speed 2 minutes until creamy.
- Spoon 1/3 of batter into well-greased and floured 10-inch fluted tube pan.
- Sprinkle with 1/2 the gelatin.
- Repeat layers.
- Spread remaining batter over gelatin to cover.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 to 50 minutes, until cake springs back when lightly pressed.
- Cool in pan 5 minutes.
- Remove from pan; cool on rack.
- Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, if desired.
This is such a great idea! Few changes - I made my own cake instead of using a box mix and I made it with less sugar than usual. Didnt add sour cream, just used butter milk (all I had at home) - We sprinkled some of the gelatin powder inbetween the layers and used the rest as a glaze! Just mixed it with a little water and icing sugar. - Added 1/2 cup choc chips to the batter to. Chocolate and berries....yummy! It was such a big hit. The rasberry taste was great, specially from the glaze and the cake had just the right sweetness in it because I didnt add much to the cake. Thanks for posting this one!
Thank you for this wonderful recipe. 5 stars from my family and friends. The grandchildren also like it made with different flavoured gelatin. Bev pietzner, australia
A good cake, simple to make. A suggestion was made: how about chocolate pudding instead of the raspberrry gelatin. Has anyone tried that?
