Raspberry Loaf Cake

It has been quite a minute since I have been able to create something in the kitchen. With all the Covid mess I have been working so much more in the bakery then on it. And if you own a business you know that the difference is drastic. I am so thankful to have some of our staff back and be operating closer to normal. I am also very thankful to be busy again like summer usually is! But all of the craziness has kept me baking for the day to day, instead of creative baking (which is my favorite part)! But, finally yesterday I went in early and made time to create something new. Because as a creative person, it’s important to continue to be creative. And even if it means you have to make the time, then that’s what you have to do!

I absolutely love loaf cakes, they are my favorite type of cake to bake and to eat. I love baking them because they are simple and easy, and I love eating them because I believe they have the perfect cake to frosting ratio. We’ve been on a fruit shortage lately (among other things) and recently had raspberries in the bakery for pies, which we normally don’t have. We’ve been baking a new pie flavor, Razzleberry (raspberry/strawberry – you can order it right now). But I had some extra, soda I decided to bake a Raspberry Loaf Cake. This is a sweet almond cake with raspberries and a simple glaze. It’s light, summery and perfect to eat for a mid morning snack (as I normally do) or even as dessert!

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.

Ingredients

Directions

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

  • 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.

  • 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.
