    A beautiful cake. The cake recipes from Martha are more beautiful and delicious than the popular bakery in my area. Thank you Martha!

    Absolutely delicious! I love a not-too-sweet cake, and this fit the bill. I've made it twice. Definitely use cake flour, as suggested. I used slight-thinned-down yogurt the second time, instead of buttermilk, for the cake, and it was even better.

    I LOVE this cake! It's a perfect light dessert for summer. It tastes to me like strawberry shortcake except with raspberries, although I imagine it would also be delicious with strawberries--or any other kind of berry for that matter. It also works really well as cupcakes.

I'm in the mood for:

  • breakfast
  • lunch
  • dinner
  • dessert
  • an appetizer
  • a cocktail
