Raspberry Pound Cake

Hey All and Happy Monday! Hope everyone had an amazing weekend! I know we did! Saturday I went to a Bridal Shower for my little cousin and got to see most of my aunts, several cousins, several sisters (I have a lot) and my mom! It was great catching up.

Next day was Easter, and it was probably the best Easter I've ever had! I woke up, worked out, had a wonderful church service, went out to brunch with just me and the hub, took a quick nap with hub, tinkered around in my work-in-progress garden, and binge watched our new total obsession favorite show Game Of Thrones (we know, we're dorks) all while eating a ton of my Raspberry Pound Cake!
The fresh raspberries are really what make this recipe. They're so sweet and juicy and I just can't get enough! Plus it's incredibly moist. 
If only the Lannisters and Starks had something this sweet to eat, maybe they wouldn't be fighting all the time :) Go Team Stark!
1 Cup sugar
1/2 Cup butter, softened
3 eggs, room temperature
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 1/2 Cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 Cup sour cream
1 1/2 Cups fresh raspberries


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease a bundt pan and set aside.

In a mixer, cream together the sugar and butter until smooth. 

Add in the eggs one at a time, beating after each egg until fully incorporated. Using a spatula, scrape down the sides of the mixer. Then add the lemon juice and vanilla and stir.

In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture.

Add in the sour cream and beat until just mixed. Don't over mix. 

Fold in the raspberries with a spatula and pour the mixture into the bundt pan. The mix will be very thick.

Bake for about 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let the pan sit for another 10 minutes before trying to remove it from the pan.

Cool, slice up and enjoy!

Side note: 

I made this awesome sauce to go over the top. I used lemon juice, powdered sugar, vanilla and milk, but I didn't make an icing. I used very little sugar versus everything else. In the end it was a darker sauce, but poured over the top it was amazing. If I figure out the measurements, I'll come back and put them up.

Did you have a wonderful Easter? Did the kids find their baskets right away? Did they love everything the Easter Bunny sent them?! I know Easter has nothing to do with candy and everything to do with the Lord sacrificing himself for us. But he sacrificed himself so we can all have a wonderful life. I hope you all had as wonderful of a day as we did :)
