Raspberry Pound Cake

Rasberry Swirl Pound Cake
Originally from MarthaStewart

My girl love Raspberry (in fact she like any kind of berry) so i just try this recipe with Raspberry and they love it. They even can't wait until the cake cool down and eat half of the cake in 5 minutes! That should mean something no? ^^

What you need:


1/2 cup unsalted Butter, room temperature
1 and 1/4 cups + 2 tablespoons Sugar
1 and 1/3 cups frozen Raspberry
1 and 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 large Eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon pure Vanilla extract
1/2 cup Sour Cream, room temperature

How to:
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
  2. Lightly butter loaf pan and line with parchment paper then butter parchment.
  3. In a food processor, mix together -- raspberry + 2 tablespoon sugar --
  4. In a bowl: whisk together -- flour + baking powder + salt -- 
  5. In a electric mixer, beat together -- butter + 1 and 1/4 cups sugar -- until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  6. Add egg + vanilla -- beat to combine.
  7. With low speed, add flour mixture alternating with sour cream, in 3 batch. Beginning and Ending with flour mixture.
  8. Transfer half the batter to loaf pan and dot with 1/2 cup raspberry puree. Repeat with remaining batter and puree.
  9. With chopstick (my way :)) swirl batter and puree together.
  10. Bake about 1 hour or until golden brown. Done!

Mix together -- Raspberry + 2 tbsp sugar

texture of finished batter

swirl! swirl!

* Store cooled cake, wrapped in plastic, at room temperature, up to 3 days

* With 1/2 recipe, i filled 1/3 of my loaf pan and i bake it about an hour.

Confession:  I didn't use all raspberry puree in the batter, i afraid it becomes too red, so i only use half of it but i was WRONG. It turns out that i don't have raspberry at all on the bottom on my finished cake :'( Next times, i will use all of it and also make an extra to serve as sauce on the side.
    Oopsy, seem like i didn't swirl enough until the bottom :P

    Now, let's go make some & Enjoy ^_^
