White Cake With Raspberry Filling Recipe

Raspberry Cake Ingredients

½ cup raspberries
½ cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1/8 cup margarine
½ cup sugar
¼ cup frozen or refrigerated egg product, thawed
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup plain yogurt, fat free
Cooking spray
¾ teaspoon fresh lemon peel


  1. If you are using frozen strawberries then make sure to thaw them for at least 15 minutes at room temperature prior to proceeding with the recipe. Drain the thawed berries and leave aside.
  2. Lightly coat a medium spring-form pan with nonstick cooking spray, leave aside.
  3. Combine the ½ cup all purpose flour, ¼ cup sugar and baking powder in a medium size bowl. Add the ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/8 cup thawed egg product and melted butter or margarine to the flour mixture. Stir well until the mixture is combined. Spread this mixture on the bottom of the prepared greased pan. Sprinkle the thawed or fresh raspberries over it.
  4. Combine the ½ cup plain yogurt, the remaining 1/8 cup egg product, the remaining ¼ cup sugar, the fresh lemon peel, the remaining ½ teaspoon vanilla extract and the 1 tablespoon all purpose flour in a medium mixing bowl. Stir the mixture well until it is smooth. Pour this mixture over the raspberry layer in the pan.
  5. Place the pan in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until done. Shake the pan gently, if the center appears set then remove it from the oven and place it over a wire rack and cool for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Lightly loosen the sides of the cake from the pan with a sharp, thin knife. Cool the cake completely and cover it. Place it in the refrigerator to chill for about 2 to 24 hours before serving. This recipe makes 6 servings.
