  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with baking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cake mix, yogurt, melted butter, eggs, lemon peel and poppy seed with electric mixer on low speed until just combined, then on medium speed for 2 minutes. Set aside.
  • 3
    Place raspberries, granulated sugar and cornstarch in microwavable bowl. Smash berries with fork until mostly broken down. Microwave uncovered on high 30 seconds; stir and microwave in 15-second increments, stirring between each, until mixture has thickened slightly and mixture bubbles (about 45 seconds). Set aside.
  • 4
    Scrape two-thirds of the batter into pan; spread smooth. Spread raspberry mixture over top; spread with remaining batter.
  • 5
    Bake about 1 hour or until golden and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove to cool on rack 1 hour.
  • 6
    In small bowl, stir icing ingredients to desired consistency. Drizzle over cooled loaf before slicing.

Expert Tips

  • Microwaving the raspberries with sugar and cornstarch keeps the filling from being too watery and absorbing into the batter.
  • Don’t like poppy seed? Don't worry, this loaf is just as tasty with or without!
