Easy Raspberry Cake Recipe
Beat the butter, sugar and zest, until the mixture becomes light a fluffy, this will take about 5 minutes. Gradually beat the eggs one at a time, then fold in the Greek yogurt and lemon juice, then the flour.
When the cake batter has been made place half of the mixture into the prepared springform cake tin, use the back of a spoon to spread the batter evenly over the base.
Evenly spread the frozen berries over the batter. It’s important that the berries are still frozen at this stage. It will not only make it easier to spread the remaining batter over the top, you will get patches of colour through the cake which can be seen when sliced.
Scoop spoonful’s of the remaining batter evenly over the frozen berries.
Then use the back of the spoon to carefully spread the batter over the berries until they are completely covered.
Bake for 40 – 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. If the cake looks like it is browning too much, loosely cover the top of the cake with aluminium foil to prevent burning.
Allow the cake to cool completely in the tin. When ready to serve transfer to a serving platter and dust the cake with powdered icing sugar. To dust with icing sugar, use a fine meshed sieve filled with 1 – 2 teaspoons of powdered sugar and gently shake over the top of the cake.
