Nutritional Facts

1 slice equals 484 calories, 18 g fat (11 g saturated fat), 130 mg cholesterol, 157 mg sodium, 75 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 7 g protein.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Grease and flour a 10-in. fluted tube pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, salt and baking powder; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating after each addition just until combined.
  3. Remove 2-1/3 cups batter to a small bowl; stir in preserves until blended. Pour half of the plain batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly. Top with raspberry batter, then remaining plain batter. Cut through batter with a knife to swirl.
  4. Bake 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar. If desired, serve with raspberries and mint. Yield: 12 servings.
Editor’s Note: To remove cakes easily, use solid shortening to grease plain and fluted tube pans.
