Friends, just in time for springtime holidays (Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Father’s Day or Fourth of July), this amazing Raspberry Yogurt Cake is a hit at every breakfast or brunch!

Breakfast Cake

I think if I could have a love affair with any fruit, it would be the raspberry, which is why you need to try this breakfast cake!

Ever since I was little, it’s always been my favorite berry, partly because I had to pick so many gallons of blackberries in the summertime growing up, I ate far too many and it ruined my love for the big blackberries. Watch the video below, and go make this delicious Raspberry Yogurt Cake! :)

Happy Anniversary

But my real love affair in life is with my husband, Paul, just having celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary!

I’ve had friends who tell me they never eat out or rarely go on dates with their spouses. I worry about that — I mean, dates don’t always have to cost money. And there are always ways to get around a huge expense, like sharing a meal, or just doing things together in the great outdoors.

Pinehurst Inn at Jenny Creek, Oregon

Pinehurst Inn, Green Springs, OR

Pinehurst Inn, outside of Ashland, Oregon, is one of our favorite places to visit.

We’ve stayed here many times, for birthdays, anniversaries, special times when we’ve just wanted to be together to fish. We’d find babysitters, or family, and splurge on one night in the Inn. It’s an enchanting place, if you’ve never been to this bed and breakfast, and the food is always delightful.

Fly fishing on Jenny Creek

This time the banks were a little overgrown, but at dusk we made our way as far along Jenny Creek as we could go. My husband is a stud fly-fisherman. He’s what I want to be when I grow up, at least with my casting. This summer, I’ve promised myself I’m going to perfect my fishing.

It’s beautiful places like this that make my heart sing, when I’m out in nature.

The profoundness of the day.

Our lives are passing quickly, so why not get out into nature more and explore God’s greatness?

I’m always in awe when I see a weed so beautiful and intricately made. (And also, the lines on our faces … didn’t we just get married?) :)

Big events have taken place this year for us … but on this day I found myself wanting to live in the moment.

Not jump ahead with thoughts of tomorrow, or waste my energy with regrets or failures of the past—but live in the now.

Coming home to a bounty of raspberries bursting on the vines in our backyard, I made a Raspberry Yogurt Cake, and did something that I always try to do when I make a cake (if I can).

Make and enjoy, or bake and freeze!

Delicious for Father’s Day or the Fourth of July holiday weekend (are you hosting?) enjoy this Raspberry Yogurt Cake for breakfast, or dessert with Old-Fashioned Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.

PS. I did take 2 pieces to our neighbor who just had a sweet baby girl!

  1. Can you use reg round cake pans lined with parchment paper?
    If use blueberries,strawberries do you still toss with sugar?…canned fruit toppings useable?

    • I’m sure you can use the regular round cake pans (but I have not tried it for acurate baking time). Yes, toss fruit with sugar. I have not tried the canned fruit, but my guess is YES, it would be fantastic. Make sure it’s drained well though. :)

  2. This looks amazing! I love raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, however my husband can’t do the seeds 😢 Can this recipe be adjusted to use with blueberries (the brain food), The hubby devourers blueberries like nobody I know!  

  3. Is it better served warm or cold?

  4. My husband is diabetic can I use a sweetener instead of the sugar?

  5. Yum! I would like to try this soon with peaches.

  6. This looks and sounds delicious. I’m going to make this tomorrow with my favorite, blueberries☺

  7. Making this and freezing it for a 2 week trip to the BVIs. Can’t wait to try it!

  8. Trying this right now, Sandy… i have frozen raspberries, do I thaw out first or not… and do I still put the sugar on frozen ones??
    Enjoy seeing your new place come alive with your special touch (and your hubby’s)!!
    Thanks so much for always sharing openly, esp about the Lord in your life!!!

  9. Hi. Thanks for the recipe. Can I use a bundt pan instead of a springform?

  10. Could I use frozen raspberries? And Greek yogurt? 

  11. Are there any adjustments if you use Greek yogurt instead of regular yogurt? Thank you so much for sharing, I will be making this soon, but will probably use a mixture of several types of berries. There seems to be an abundance of berries in my area this year. Plus I’ll be freezing quite a few for use this winter.

  12. Thanks! I will try this recipe as soon as I get my paper from Essay writers hub org.
