    Top cake with whipped cream and raspberries. Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar. Garnish with lemon slice. Serve cake from skillet. Transfer any remaining cake to a plate; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

  • The middle of the cake should have a slight jiggle when you remove it from the oven. Be careful not to overbake this cake. It will continue to bake a little even after it is removed from the oven.
  • Change up the berries! Blackberries, blueberries and strawberries all go well with the flavor of this cake, so pick your favorite.
