Raspberry Cake

Never say Never!
It was about 50 years ago, when my hubby had to pick berries,
as a small child and he vowed he would
never plant or grow berries for agriculture.
So he stayed with the animal sector and really enjoyed his occupation.

But seeing that I have been at home over the past two years,
I asked him if we could plant a few ever bearing raspberries.
Well he took that to heart.
Looks who's down on his knees planting berries.

My walking partner phoned this morning
and said she needed a day to catch up.
Fair Enough!
I totally agreed and while we were quickly talking about our days,
I told her I needed something quick for coffee.
"Do I run to town or make something?"
She responded, "Do you have raspberries?"
"I sure do."
(These raspberries are not from our new cuttings. I bought them locally.)

This is one girl that needs to be adding recipe's to our
Mennonite Girls Can Cook.
I scrawled down the recipe and whipped it up.
Saved myself a trip to town,
plus there is nothing like serving something home-made.

Raspberry Cake

1/3 C margarine
1 C Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp.vanilla
2 C flour
3 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 C Milk

You know how this works.
Heat oven to 375.
Cream your margarine, sugar, eggs and vanilla.
Add your flour baking powder, salt and finally your milk.
Throw into 9x13 greased pan.
Add about 3 Cups of fresh raspberries on top of the cake.
Bake in oven for 30 minutes.

Drizzle a basic icing over the cake and BINGO! It's ready to go.
It' so YUMMY and is definitely a keeper in our home.

Obviously this man could taste the results.
Isn't that what men want?
Fast Results?

  4. Yea Costco.
    I'm wondering about the time it took to drive and the gas costs????
    Maybe we should add them to the Mennonite blog.
