A few weeks ago, I had a chat with a French lady I recently met. We talked everything baking and exchanged recipes for quick and yummy cakes, like this fresh raspberry cake. She told me she makes this recipe quite often at home, and her whole family loves it. When I heard “recipe” and “cake” I was all ears.
Not sure if you guys know but I have a major sweet tooth, so baking is something I do for fun. Although it’s difficult to find recipes these days that have less than ten ingredients and don’t require a lot of time to prepare. Which is such a bummer, I don’t like staying in the kitchen for too long, after about an hour my excitement and enthusiasm about the whole baking process is gone.
Luckily, this fresh raspberry cake takes 5 min to prepare, and another 25 min in the oven. That’s it! Get your cup of tea or coffee ready, cut a slice, and enjoy. It’s so good! So delicious and sweet that it didn’t even make it to the end of the day.
It’s not a secret that the French know a thing or two about cooking and baking. Have you read this book? If you haven’t get it, it shares a secret or two about the way French people eat.
