Downeast Raspberry Cake

"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 Recipe #276371 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!

    Was looking for a different cake recipe to make for my mother's birthday and came across this recipe. It's moist and tasty. I loved the hint of cinnamon. Halved the recipe as there were only 5 of use and baked it about 20 minutes. Made this gluten free and also added 1 T ground flax seed. Served with vanilla ice cream. Thanks for posting this Kim. Made for Zaar Cookbooks Tag.

    This is so delicious - it is light and easy to make. I did add about 6 T. heavy cream to get the glaze to a spreading consistency; however, next time, I will wait until the cake has cooled before adding it. The warmth of the cake caused the glaze to sort of sink in the middle, and I had to keep respreading it. However, this did not keep it from being a 5-star cake.

    Made a cake & a tart yesterday, one for some friends & one for myself, then decided to split them half & half ~ Wise decision, for my, anyway, as I loved them both! This cake is a true winner! Had expected to use frozen raspberries, but did find some very nice fresh ones! One of the things I like here, is that the cake doesn't come out of a box! Understand ~ I don't mind using a cake mix, but every now & then it's just nice to make it from scratch, & this was one of those times! Easy to put together & with a wonderful taste! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe cooking game]
