"I love to have family over for the holidays and serve this requested dessert," says Margaret Malinowski of Oak Creek, Wisconsin. "It's a recipe that I believe is good enough to be printed in the finest food magazine--Taste of Home!"
This golden berry-filled coffee cake is crowned with even more plump, fresh berries. “Living on a farm in Wisconsin, we love using the blackcaps (wild black raspberries) that grow in our woods,” says Sheri Kratcha of Avoca.
Over the years, I've competed in several state fair cooking contests, and this cake is one of my most impressive entries. It looks as fantastic as it tastes. The fruit is in season right around Michigan's late August fair time.
This recipe is a hit with kids of all ages. When I'm in a hurry, store-bought cupcakes work fine. And while I prefer homemade whipped cream, purchased whipped topping is an easy option.—Edith Ruth Muldoon, Baldwin, New York
WITH a family of six children, it seems I'm always cooking and on the lookout for variety in menus and special treats to surprise them. This recipe was given to me by a co-worker. The flavor compliment of the raspberry to the chocolate is very pleasing.
PERCH this home "tweet" home on a party table, and your event will get off to a flying start! The cute cottage from CT's cooks is a white chocolate cake with a luscious raspberry-jam layer. For extra fun, our kitchen staff added a cookie entryway, marshmallow chick and candy nest.
"This moist cake topped with raspberry whipped cream is from a dear friend's vast recipe collection," writes Christi Ross of Guthrie, Texas. "It tastes like something Grandma would make and is pretty enough to serve at a special luncheon or shower."
