Fresh Corn Cake with Raspberries

Karry Hosford
Yield 10 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)
Puréed fresh corn adds unique sweetness to this dessert. Tossing the raspberries with a small amount of flour prevents them from sinking to the bottom of the cake.

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 cup water

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
