Description

Better than Starbucks makes!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE RASPBERRY POUND CAKE:
  • ¼ cups Milk
  • 3 whole Eggs
  • ¼ teaspoons Raspberry Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoons Almond Extract
  • ½ cups Raspberries
  • 1-½ cup Cake Flour
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • ¾ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 15 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
  • FOR THE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:
  • ¼ cups Butter, Softened
  • ¼ cups Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a 9×5 loaf pan with non-stick spray.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, and raspberry, vanilla and almond extracts. (Raspberry extract is optional but is a great addition if raspberries are not available or are very ripe—it just adds touch of flavor). Set aside.

Set a mesh strainer over a small bowl. Use a spatula to push and mash the raspberries through the strainer. The seeds and pith will be left behind and the raspberry juice will be in the bowl. Set aside the raspberry juice and discard the seeds and pith.

Sift flour, sugar and baking powder into the bowl of a stand mixer. Fit mixer with paddle attachment, and turn on low. Add in softened butter and mix on low until the flour/butter mixture has combined. It doesn’t have to be completely smooth, but just make sure majority of flour and butter has been mixed together. Slowly pour the eggs/milk mixture into the stand mixer in a steady stream. Continue to beat on low or medium-low until thoroughly mixed.

Remove stand mixer bowl from mixer and pour about 1/3 to 1/2 of the batter into a separate bowl. Into the smaller bowl of batter, stir in the raspberry juice.

Alternate pouring the two batters into the prepared loaf pan, smoothing out the batters with a spoon between each addition. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove pan from oven and set it on a wire rack. Let bread rest in the loaf pan for 10-15 minutes, then turn it out of the pan and allow bread to complete cooling.

For the frosting:
In a bowl using a stand or hand mixer, beat together softened butter and cream cheese until smooth. Slowly add in powdered sugar and combine until smooth.

Spread frosting over the top of the cooled pound cake. Let it rest, then slice and serve.

I made this tonight and the directions say to combine baking soda with other ingredients. Yet, the ingredient list says baking powder. I just used the powder. Hopefully you’ll correct this… Also, this recipe should be doubled for a regular sized loaf. The bread is cooling, so I can’t comment on how it tastes, yet. But the icing is spot on, it’s VERY sweet. It’s also ” yellow” in color, so, if you want the icing to be white like Starbucks, I’d say leave the butter out!

This recipe is easy to make and very tasty! I actually used raspberry jam instead of using fresh raspberry juice (I had little bit of jam left in the fridge and wanted to use it up…)and added little bit of food color to make the color pop. I also used regular flour since I didn’t have cake flour, but it came out just fine. Thank you for sharing the great recipe. Highly recommended!
