Why Organic

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan (1 1/2 pound pan) with parchment paper letting it hang over the sides for easier removal.

  • Add the eggs and milk and mix on low until it combined. Add the flour, baking powder, and sea salt and mix on low until combined into a smooth batter.
  • Grease the loaf pan with either butter or cooking spray. Pour about half of the batter into the pan add in some of the raspberries. Then add in the remaining batter and drop in the rest of the raspberries.
  • Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely in the pan.
  • To make the glaze: In a medium bowl whisk together the powdered sugar and milk.
  • Remove the loaf cake from the pan and pour the glaze over the top.
  • Store in a cake dome or in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Notes

  • Gluten Free – Replace the flour with 269 grams (1 3/4 cups) organic gluten free flour blend.
  • High Altitude – Bake at 350°F for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
