This Lemon Raspberry Snack Cake is a tangy and delicious cake, that is perfect for afternoon snacking!
Hello friends, it’s been a while. I don’t even know what happened, but all of a sudden it’s been almost 2 weeks and I haven’t posted anything over here. I guess that happens sometimes during the creative process…I get busy, then distracted and I just can’t do it all, so something has to give. So I took an unexpected break to gather myself, get my home and life organized and got caught up on the paperwork side of blogging. And it felt good. Sometimes it’s necessary to take a break, and without guilt.
Know what else should be done without guilt? Eating cake. Cake should be enjoyed without guilt. Especially cake with fresh lemons and raspberries. Because with that much fruit, it’s almost a fruit salad. 😉
For me, the best way to get back into things is to just do them. I may not feel like baking or cooking at the time, but once I get that mixer going it all just comes back to me. I love watching ingredients come together into a delicious end result…and then I get to share it with you, and I love that. What good is a great recipe if you can’t share it with people?
And this is a great recipe. I’ve made this cake a couple of times now because my family loves it so much…I made it once with blackberries, and then again with raspberries, and the raspberry version was our favourite. Raspberries are a perfect match with lemon. But if you love blackberries, or strawberries or even cherries, you could make this recipe with any of them. So good.
This cake is tangy with lemon flavour, but sweet at the same time. And the raspberries provide the perfect balance. I hope you try this recipe and love it as much as we do! And don’t be afraid of the ingredient list which looks a bit tedious, it’s easy.
