    This a really pretty cake that can actually turn out exactly like the photo! I added a few fresh raspberries on the top as a garnish. The batter is a lot like biscuit dough. Use a greased spatula or spoon to spread out in the pan. The raspberry preserves can be swirled in stead of spooned on top if you get carried away. Delicious.
