Raspberry Buttermilk Cake

I found a reference to this cake in a comment left on a cooking site, someone covered this Lovely with lemon cream cheese frosting, WHY? Why would they do that??? I am not a fan of frosting anyway but to cover up this beautiful cake with it had to be a crime.
Anyway that is how my google search for Raspberry Buttermilk Cake recipes began.
I settled on this one from Gourmet, the directions were easy to follow, but the biggest reason- it had printable directions :)

Raspberry Buttermilk Cake

1c. flour
1/2t. baking soda
1/2t. baking powder
1/4t. salt
1/2 c. butter, softened
2/3c. sugar, plus extra to sprinkle on top
1/2t. vanilla
1 egg
1/2c. buttermilk
1c. fresh raspberries

Preheat oven to 400. I sprayed an 8" spring form pan with Pam.
Whisk together flour, powder, soda and salt.
In mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar.
Beat in vanilla, than the egg.
Mix in half of the flour mixture, then mix in the buttermilk.
Scrape sides mix well, add in the remaining flour mixture.
Spread into cake pan and scatter the raspberries on top,
I then sprinkled the top with some turbinado sugar.
Bake fro 25-30 min. Let cool 10 min. before removing the side of the pan.
Cool completely.

Looks good! I love anything with raspberries in it.

I think many people assume that if something is a cake it should have frosting. I took a spice cake to work once and nobody would eat it because it had no frosting. top.

Oh that is a beautiful cake. I'm not the biggest fan of frosting (most are way to sweet) so this is my kind of cake!

That does look good. I;ve got way too many frozen raspberries in my freezer so I might try this.

Thanks for sharing!

Looks great! But honestly, it sounds amazing with that lemon cream cheese frosting. I am all about frosting.

I love all the frosting comments, lol. We are a divided household on the frosting debate :)

I think a lovely lemon curd served on the side would be very complimentary! What is turbinado sugar?
