Raspberry Cake with Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting

For Sandi's Tea of Roses party,  won't you join me for some raspberry cake and either raspberry zinger or strawberry tea?  I'd love to share some with you.   I'm using my beautiful roses teapot and matching cup that was given to me from some dear friends. 

When I saw Miz Helen's recipe for this cake, being the raspberry lover that I am, I knew I had to make it.  Miz Helen's recipe is for a sheet cake and you can find her original recipe here.
I cut her recipe in half and baked it into 8" square pan.  Here's the smaller version of Miz Helen's delicious cake.


1 cups all- purpose flour
1 cups white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoons Raspberry Extract
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup water
1 cup fresh raspberries

In a medium mixing bowl mix together the egg and sour cream until smooth
In a large mixing bowl mix together, flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
Add the egg and sour cream mixture and beat the mixture into the flour mixture.
In a small saucepan add the butter and water and bring to a boil
Add the hot butter and water to the flour and egg mixture and whisk until smooth.
Add the Raspberry Extract and mix well until completely blended
Stir in the raspberries breaking some of them so you have little bits all over the cake. (A potato masher works well for this part).
The batter will be very thin.
Pour into a greased and floured 8" square baking pan.  You could also make pretty pink cupcakes with this batter.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Let cool before frosting.

Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting

4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
2 T. Raspberry Preserves
1/2 teaspoon Raspberry Extract
2 to 3 cups powdered sugar

In a medium size bowl, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth.
Add the preserves and extract.
Slowly add the powdered sugar until you get the consistency needed for the frosting.
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:

            Thank you for your visit!  xo
