Simple-Raspberry Cake

You know you are blessed when you can share the love for food with your colleagues-loving not only to eat food but also to cook. You can spend endless time everyday chatting about the food you love and food you cook. So, when one of my coworker baked and brought this simply delicious bread/cake, I can not stop myself from bugging her to get the recipe. And she was kind enough to give me the recipe which was originally from a magazine. It is easy to make and goes so well with a cup of tea or coffee.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 50 minutes


All purpose flour - 2 cups
Sugar - 3/4th cup
Baking powder - 2 tsp
Salt-  1/2 tsp
1 egg
1 cup milk (original recipe said coconut milk)
1/3 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup raspberry jam, melted

Preheat oven to 350F and grease and flour a8 inch loaf pan.

Stir together first 4 ingredients. Beat the egg with milk (cold, otherwise the egg will get scrambled) and butter in a separate bowl. Add the egg mixture to the flour mix.

Stir the mix until well mixed and moistened.

Spoon half the mix into the greased pan and layer it up with the raspberry jam. 

Add the remaining batter on top of it. Using a knife swirl the jam through the batter. 

Bake it for 50 minutes or till the fork when inserted comes out clean. Cool it down completely before slicing.

Enjoy the warm yummy cake with a cup of tea. If you get time to read a book along, it becomes heavenly.
