OOPS! Hi Guys!!! tee hee hee!!!
Last night Joy and I were out working in the back yard. I was feeding her raspberries off a few plants that keep coming up each year where I don't want them. Then I realized how many there were. MAN!!! There was a small ton of them. SO! I brought out a bowl and started filling it.
|Freshly picked right out of the yard! YUM!|
This morning I looked at that big bowl in my fridge trying to figure out what to do with them. AH! It didn't take long. I was thinking raspberry shortcake. So, because I'm lazy, I got out a white cake mix, some eggs and butter, threw them all in a bowl and beat it to death!!! Then I poured about 1/2 of it into an oblong cake pan.
|I used butter instead of oil and 3 whole eggs.|
|Pour about 1/2 the batter in the pan.|
Then I threw most of the raspberries over the top of the cake mix.
|Add a generous amount of berries. This is around 2 cups.|
Then I slowly poured the rest of the cake mix over the raspberries trying to make sure each berry was covered.
|All berries covered.|
Baked that puppy up. OH MY... Dear Betty Crocker. PLEASE! Could you go back to your earlier recipe and give me back a decent product!!! OOPS! You didn't want to hear that did you?
|Baked but not pretty.|
After Joy and I went for a walk I cut the cake and fell in love!!!!
|The berries fell to the bottom, but there was no problem|
cutting the cake or pulling the pieces out.
|This is what the bottom looked like|
on the first piece I pulled out.
The cake itself is sweet and the raspberries are tart. YUM!!! Who needs frosting? OH! YOU??????
OKAY! I used chocolate! What can I say??? Oh I know ,,, SINFUL!!!!
|What can I say? I'm very lazy some times!|
|Frosted and soooo ready to eat.|
|The part not frosted?|
That's for me!!!
OKAY! So what did I do????
I made the box mix as the recipe called for EXCEPT! I used melted butter for the oil. Because this was a white cake it calls for 3 egg whites. I used 3 whole eggs. Every thing else was just what the box called for.
The raspberries make the cake a little wetter while it's baking so it might take an extra 5 minutes or so to bake. This took 35 minutes to bake.
Give this a try while the berries are still around! YUMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a good one and thanks for stopping by!!!!!
