Friends, don’t you love an easy upside down cake recipe? They are so pretty, buttery, and good. This Warm Raspberry Butter Cake delicious and it makes you feel good inside.

This butter cake makes the best warm, gooey dessert, topped with vanilla ice cream. Optional to add fresh whipped cream, more raspberries, or even a raspberry sauce.

The cake is a little crunchy on the outside (because of the butter and brown sugar), and moist on the inside. The textures and flavors are unbeatable. Maybe you’ve already tried our Blueberry Yogurt Morning Cake, which is also great for breakfast.

Now for the weekend, who will you invite over for breakfast, or even a small snack? This is why we love to host: It actually takes us out of our comfort zone, we stretch our monies a bit to serve others (a great dish, or even a snack), we learn more about others and think less about ourselves.

Connecting with particularly delightful folks or even new neighbors, we learn and grow when we ask others about their lives, and their world, and it’s good for us. Hospitality does matter!

ENJOY!
