This Raspberry Butter Cake is really delicious. I prepared it on Monday and now on Wednesday it’s almost gone. It’s that good. I actually wanted to make it for Valentine’s Day, but I already had other sweets prepared, so decided to postpone making this recipe. This cake would be perfect to bake for Valentine’s Day. However it doesn’t scream Valentine to you, it’s not heart shaped or overly pink. So it would also be perfect on any other moment. It would also be good for Sinterklaas, as a variation on the traditional butter cake.
The butter cake is made using a package for butter cake to which you add butter, an egg and lemon peel. There are two layers of butter cake, with in between raspberry jam and raspberries. It’s topped with white chocolate ganache and raspberries. The raspberries give a fresh flavor to the butter cake. The recipe is from the Koopmans website.
Other delicious cakes with fruit are the Mother’s Day Cake, Mega White Chocolate Cookie with Confectioner’s Cream and Fruit and the Blackberry Mascarpone Tart. Or this No Bake Oreo Cheesecake, without fruit, but it doesn’t require an oven.
Didn’t make that many changes to the recipe. I used 20 grams butter less, since I used a package from the brand Gwoon instead of Koopmans. I used less raspberries on top, found that 21 was enough. Baked the butter cake 30 instead of 25 minutes. So small changes.
