Raspberry Pie Cake

Summertime calls for easy fruity desserts, doesn’t it? If you can include ice-cream, then all the better, I say!

Raspberries are my husband’s absolute favorite fruit, and so I recently modified my Apple Pie Cake recipe to use raspberries instead of apples, and it turned out scrumptious!

This is one of the easiest and prettiest cakes to make!

Raspberry Pie Cake

Ingredients:

With your mixer, combine everything except the raspberry pie filling and raspberries.
Pour batter into a greased and floured 9×13 inch baking dish.

Then spread the raspberry pie filling over the top of the batter. You can leave it like that, or if you’d like to add fresh raspberries on top, you can. Just wash and dry 6 ounces of fresh raspberries, and sprinkle over the top of the pie filling.  It adds a little more texture and fancy-ness.

You could bake the cake now, and have it as more of a snack cake, or you can add a crumbly topping, and it becomes more of a coffee-cake.

Crumbly Topping

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of flour (I like unbleached)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter

Mix together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt, then cut in the butter till the mixture is crumbly.

Spread the crumbly topping all over the top of the batter.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for around 35 to 40 minutes,
or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

This cake was a complete hit at our house!

If I’m in the mood for extra sweetness, sometimes I’ll drizzle vanilla frosting over the top!

Note: I’ve also made this cake 2 times with peach pie filling and it turns out wonderful as well.
