This cake is moist and is filled with a sweet raspberry swirl. Save calories by using fat-free sour cream. You can also freeze this cake up to two months.
1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts, toasted
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1 1/8 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
1 large egg

3/4 cup fat-free sour cream
1/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons 2% reduced-fat milk
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine raspberry jam and walnuts in a small bowl.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine sugar, butter, lemon rind, 1 teaspoon vanilla, egg, and egg white in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add flour mixture and sour cream alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
Spread half the batter into an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Spoon raspberry mixture over top, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Spread remaining batter over raspberry mixture.
Bake at 350° for 55 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Combine 1/8 teaspoon vanilla , powdered sugar, and milk in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Drizzle over loaf.
Amazing flavor - super easy to make!
Hard (for me) to get only 1/2 the batter into the pan - ended up with more like 3/4 of it.
I ended up skipping the walnuts and using more of the jam.
Cam out great and the glaze was great!
