Amazing Raspberry (or Whatever Berry) Snack Cake

I made the most amazing dessert the other day.  It was so good (am I allowed to say that about something I made?).  I have always loved the Blueberry Snack Cake recipe I found years ago, and I was re-reading some comments on my blog on that recipe.

This past weekend, I just got a hankerin’ for some raspberries.  I love raspberries.  I just happened to have some frozen ones in my freezer for such a time as this.

I decided to take a friend’s advice and turn my Blueberry Snack Cake into Raspberry Snack Cake instead.

Wow. That was a great idea.

This was so delicious.  I can’t believe I haven’t used raspberries in this before now.

I had another friend who said they tried this with peaches.  I am so doing that next time. 

This is just that kind of awesome recipe.  I don’t think you could make it taste bad.  Any berries (and some fruits) you happen to have on hand would work.

This is not a difficult recipe to make.  You do have to cut the butter into the other ingredients, but I have a little trick up my sleeve to make short work of that task.

You see, I used to use a pastry cutter to cut my cold butter into the flour, but not anymore.

I use my cheese grater.  Yep… my cheese grater! 

By grating the cold butter into the flour, I save a bunch of time and wear and tear on my wrist.  After grating it in, I just stir the butter into the mixture with a fork (or a pastry cutter if you insist) and it is good to go.

Incredible Raspberry Snack Cake

2 C all-purpose flour
1 1/2 C sugar
1/2 C cold butter
1 tsp baking powder
1 C milk
2 eggs, separated
2 C fresh or frozen raspberries (if using frozen; do not thaw before adding to batter)

In a mixing bowl, combine flour and sugar. 

Add baking powder, milk, and egg yolks to remaining mixture; mix well.  The batter will be thick and lumpy.

Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; then fold into the batter.
