Rustic Raspberry Butter Cake


It’s that time of year again for these red beauties. The sad thing is that Chloe no longer likes them. Last year was so much fun – she’d pick and eat as many as her little hands could reach. This year she’ll help pick, but that is about it. At least she still likes blueberries.

For a Fourth of July bbq at a neighbor’s house I made what I call a rustic raspberry butter cake. Simple, buttery goodness, and a great way to use up any in season fruit (I’ve used rhubarb and strawberries, too).

Rustic Raspberry Butter Cake

1 stick salted butter, softened
3/4 to 1 cup sugar (depending on fruit) + extra for sprinkling on top
2 eggs
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
sea salt
1 cup raspberries

In a mixer, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy – about 3-5 minutes. Beat the eggs together lightly and add in slowly. Mix the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl and then add it in as well. Pour mixture into a lightly-oiled baking pan and dot with fruit. Finish with a dusting of sugar and just a light sprinkling of sea salt on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until golden.

  1. Looks sooooo yummy!

  2. Did you use any extra sugar with the rhubarb? I have such a bumper crop of rhubarb this year, that I’m definitely going to try this cake. Just worried about the sweetness level.

  3. Oh, this looks so amazing! I have some rhubarb to use too. Can’t wait to try it and would love any extra info about the rhubarb. Thanks!

  4. Looks amazing!!!!!! Happy summer!

  5. I wondered today if children’s taste buds change and develop with them… Paolo used to love blueberries, and now he won’t touch them. My current consolation is that he still loves blackberries and strawberries…

    Congrats at being able to bake with a one month old in the house! Do you wear him all day long? That’s how I was able to cook at all. The cake is beautiful, by the way… The battershot looks especially tasty!

  6. This is perfect for the raspberries we just harvested from our garden!
