Baking On The Last Day Of Spring

It hasn't really felt like spring here in Alberta, Canada but the first day of summer starts tomorrow.  I really don't enjoy cooking or baking as much in the summer except for grilled fare and cooking with berries.  The raspberries, blueberries and strawberries are coming into season and I couldn't resist baking my usual Royal Raspberry Cake.  It is so delicious and very low in fat.

Measure 3 and 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen raspberries, thawed.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes

Let cool on cooling rack for 5 minutes

Drizzle with icing 

Enjoy!  It's best warm and also excellent with vanilla ice cream.

If anyone is interested in this recipe, let me know.  Have a wonderful last day of Spring!
