Raspberry Limeade Cake

My friend Susan recently brought this cake to a church picnic. It was so good and such a pretty cake. It is a great summertime dessert. I don’t think I would have thought to mix raspberries and limeade, but they worked really well in this cake.

I took a picture of the cake at the picnic and told her she might just see it on my site.  So, she emailed me the recipe information so I could post it if I wanted.  It originally came from Paula Deen’s magazine.  Susan did adapt it a little by changing the raspberry filling. The original recipe had you making a raspberry filling.  Susan simplified it by just using raspberry jam.  I think it was really good with the jam.  It saves a step and makes the cake easier to make.

This recipe has a lot of ingredients, but it is not hard to make.

  1. Isn’t there a famous Raspberry-Limeade drink served somewhere? Anyway, the cake sounds very interesting. Thanks for posting it!

  2. This cake looks fit to take to next year’s family reunion! I think the raspberries and limeade make a wonderful sounding combination, just like a layer of raspberry jam on the bottom of a lemon meringue pie works so beautifully. Can’t wait to try this!

  3. I love raspberry filled cake. This looks so good!

  4. What a glorious looking cake. I love the use of buttermilk and raspberry jam. I can only imagine how good this must have tasted. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  5. What a beautiful cake!

  6. This looks decadent! I love raspberries and lime – and I bet the buttermilk gives it a great tang. To top it all off – cream cheese icing. Oh my.

    I’m starting a new blog carnival on August 31 – Slightly Indulgent Mondays – fabulous food a little bit healthier. I’d love for you to participate!

  7. If I had the limeade in my house I would be hanging out with my Kitchenaide all night long and eating this for breakfast tomorrow. Tell your friend that I can’t wait to make this. Thanks for sharing.
