Raspberries are very delicate but truly adorable for its color, texture and taste.

Cheese cake is everyone's favorite. But this one is different from our regular cheese cake and when I first came across this recipe in the net, could not resist from trying. The ingredients speaks of its texture. The butter and cheese combination complimented with raspberry preserve is a true delight. I followed this recipe and modified a little to my taste. The recipe is pretty straight forward and you won't go wrong.

Raspberry Cake

Procedure:
  1. Grease the pan generously with the butter
  2. Preheat the oven to 175 degree Celsius.
  3. In bowl mix the flour, baking powder, soda, vanilla well and keep aside.
  4. In another bowl beat the butter and sugar till fluffy. Add the cheese and beat well. Add the eggs - one at a time and beat well till they blend. Now add the flour and milk in alternatives. Mix well and scoop this into the greased pan and spread the top evenly.
  5. For preparing raspberry preserves
  6. Take equal portions of strawberry and raspberry and chop them into tiny bits. Measure it in a cup. You need to add 1/2 the quantity of brown sugar to it. Add 3 tbsp of lemon juice and 1 tbsp of grated orange zest. Leave it for 3 hours. Then boil it till sauce consistency is reached. Cool and keep aside.
  7. Drop 5 tbsp of this preserve on top of the prepared cake batter. Mix/swirl with a spoon. I used only top layer. It is up to you.
  8. Bake it for 35 minutes and reduce the temperature to 150 degree Celsius and bake for another 10 minutes. Test and remove it from the oven. Let it cool. Slice and enjoy.


It is spongy, creamy, moist and the taste is simply superb.
