Apple and Raspberry Cake

Since we moved into our house three years ago, Mr PC has developed an interest in gardening and mainly 'growing food' as he puts it. This year we have had a bumper crop of raspberries and we can hardly pick and eat them quick enough! I love rasps but rarely buy them as they are expensive and generally tasteless, so having an endless (free) supply has been fab! 7 kilos of fruit and counting!

Rampant rasps

Aside from scoffing them straight off the plants (who, me?) or eating them in a flan, I've been keen to find some other uses for them so when A Thrifty Mrs posted a few days ago with a new cake recipe, I jumped at the chance to get baking! As if I need an excuse...

Apple and raspberry cake = num yummy

And let me just say, it was so good, that there is none left! It didn't even last a whole 24 hours. I urge you to make it!
On the subject of cake, I also made a raspberry cheesecake at the weekend from Cake Days and while it tasted great, it looked rather sloppy. I think this was to do with the bain marie you cook it in which I think caused some water to get in the mixture, making it slightly loose. I guess I'll just have to make it again to get it right...

What have you been baking recently?


  1. Argh! Another cake to add to my list of cakes I want to make.

    I've been making the Lemon and Eldflower cake from The Goddess's Kitchen over and over and over again. It's so easy to make and I've never had such an amazing reaction from people. I even made one to order the other day from someone at work who loved it so much she wanted one of her own! Seriously go and check it out.

  2. Ooh, Lemon and Elderflower sounds tasty! Mr PC made gooseberry and elderflower jam the other week and it's delicious! Will def investigate that cake :)


Talk to me, leave me a comment, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
