Lemon raspberry cake

Michelle was hoping for lemon cake: Please? (Bambi eyes.) It always came out wrong when she did it, she claimed.

And then she just happened to mention that she and her father had bought a big box of raspberries on Saturday and we should eat them. Soon. (Checking, she added,) They all look great so far.

I protested, I never write it down, I just do, and I haven’t made it in awhile. (I should have checked the blog.) So I forged ahead: only, this time I used a cup of just-juiced lemons and a half a cup of almost-too-healthy Earth Balance. Butter would have been better, only, not around her dairy allergy.

Meanwhile, she rinsed the raspberries; we had about 10 oz left to play with. We patted them dry over and over with paper towels. Then I sprinkled them across the top of the cake (you have to work fast with that recipe) and about 1/4 c brown sugar over them.

Got it right this time. Oh most definitely.

There are times it’s good your pictures won’t embiggen. ‘Cake Day’ is always one of them. (‘Expensive yarn day’ is another.)

Raspberries and lemon: what a scrumptious combination! 🙂

I am thinking pie cherries would work as well as raspberries. And I am thinking about the tree full of pie cherries coming into their full ripeness as I type this…
