Raspberry honey loaf cake

Written by Veronica Lavenia

Raspberry honey loaf cake is one of the most tasty, soft and healthy cake I love to eat and make.

Raspberries are among the most delicious berries. They are also called “red gold” for its many therapeutic qualities. Rich in citric acid, fiber, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium and sodium, they also contain good doses of vitamins from group A, B and C. They are very delicate fruits and it is preferable to consume them within one or two days, from the purchase. To enjoy the raspberries all year long it will be enough to freeze them in this way: Wash the raspberries and dry with a kitchen cloth. Put the raspberries in the freezer on a tray, spaced from each other. Once they are dry, place a food bag and freeze them.

This gluten free recipe, made with brown rice flour and brown rice milk, provides that the raspberries are cut into small parts. In this way, they will blend better with the mixture without ending at the bottom of the mixture. I find it to be the best of my raspberry recipes: very soft and fragrant.
