  • Summary

    This light and moist Almond Raspberry Swirl Cake has amazing flavor and a wonderfully soft texture.

    Ingredients

    • 1 (8oz)(226g) package cream cheese, softened
    • 1 1/2 sticks (3/4c)(168g) unsalted butter, softened
    • 2 cups (400g) sugar
    • 4 large eggs, room temperature
    • 3 cups (342g) cake flour- see Notes for substitution
    • 2 teaspoons (8g) baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon (3g) baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon (3g) salt
    • 1 cup (242g) buttermilk - See Notes for substitution
    • 1/4 cup (54g) vegetable oil (we used canola oil)
    • 1 Tablespoon (12g) almond extract
    • 1/3 cup (90g) Seedless Raspberry Jam, plus additional to spread between the cake layers
    • Raspberry Flavoring (optional) Either 1/2 teaspoon (2g) Raspberry Extract or 1 tsp Raspberry Jell-o powder. *See Notes Section for more details
    • 1 cup of reserved cake batter
    • 1 cup (240g) heavy cream
    • 1/4 (29g) cup powdered sugar
    • 1 (4g) teaspoon vanilla
    • 2 sticks, 1 cup, (226g) unsalted butter, slightly softened
    • 2 (8oz) packages cream cheese (total weight 452g) I use full fat cream cheese. Using reduced fat or the spreadable cream cheese will cause the frosting to be too soft. Soften very slightly.
    • 2 teaspoons (8 g) vanilla extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt (2g) optional - it will cut the sweetness, popcorn salt is best to use because it is fine and dissolves faster
    • 6 to 6 1/2 cups (690g to 747g) powdered sugar
