Lemon Raspberry Ooey Gooey Cake

Lemon Raspberry Ooey Gooey Cake is another flavor added to my Ooey Gooey Cake collection. It’s so easy to make and so delicious to eat! Fresh raspberries are added to a lemon cake mix to create a decadent and refreshing dessert that will be hard to stop eating!Lemon Raspberry Ooey Gooey CakeOne thing I do absolutely love about this dessert is the texture. The thin top layer of delicate flakiness resting precariously over the ooey gooey raspberry lemon lusciousness is pretty darn amazing. They battle it out in your mouth, the sweet rich velvet like cake and the crispy top layer of crust.  Just to be clear, there are no losers in that battle. It is obvious I love these cakes since I have made quite a few, including  Chocolate Ooey Gooey Cake, Strawberry Ooey Gooey Cake, and even Red Velvet Ooey Gooey Cake! It was time to bring a little citrusy flavor to the mix for this Lemon Raspberry Ooey Gooey Cake Recipe!Lemon Raspberry Ooey Gooey Cake RecipeWith just a few ingredients, you will have your Lemon Raspberry Ooey Gooey Cake ready to share!IngredientsLemon cake mixButter–Let it get to room temperature.Eggs–Room temperature eggs work the best for baking. Out of eggs? No problem. Try one of my Egg Substitutes for this recipe!Cream cheese–Again, (are you seeing the theme here?), room temperature is best.Confectioners’ sugar–You will use this sugar in the mix as well as for the dusting after the cake has been baked.Fresh raspberries–Use fresh raspberries. If you thaw frozen raspberries, they will be too runny for this recipe.Lemon juiceHow to Make Lemon Raspberry Ooey Gooey CakeThere are two distinct layers in an ooey gooey cake. This one is lemon cake on the bottom and a raspberry lemon-flavored layer on top. The bottom layer should be a bit firm, but the top layer is melt-in-your-mouth velvety perfection.To get started, preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare a 9×13 baking pan.In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, butter, and one egg. This will be the base of the delicious dessert.Spread the cake layer on the bottom of the pan and combine the rest of the ingredients, folding in the raspberries at the end. Pour the mixture over the cake and bake for 35-40 minutes. If you check the doneness with a toothpick, it should appear wet.Let it cool a bit before cutting and serving.5 Unwritten Rules for Ooey Gooey Cake Success:Make sure you prepare your pan correctly. I use GOOP {Homemade Baker’s Spray} and think it’s far superior to any product you can buy at the store. If you don’t want to make GOOP, grease your pan then line with parchment paper.Room temperature ingredients is a good idea. Set your butter and cream cheese out a few hours before you plan on making this amazing cake.Don’t undermix ingredients. Whip the cream cheese until it is light and fluffy, at least 3 minutes.Pan size matters.  You can use a 9×9 or 8×8 square pan or a round cake pan. Just make sure your oven is properly calibrated as you don’t want hot spots that will cause uneven baking. (Hint: Use bake strips around your pan!)You are not limited by the flavors in the recipe! Try adapting the Ooey Gooey cake recipe to create any flavor combination. The possibilities are endless!Did you know the “magic” version of this recipe? You simply mix all the ingredients in one bowl and then bake. There is no layer separation, but the flavor and texture are still amazing!Looking for More Lemon Desserts?Lemon Cream Cheese Coffee CakeLemon Blueberry Sweet RollsOoey Gooey Lemon CookiesRaspberry Lemon Bundt CakeEnjoying a rich lemon raspberry ooey-gooey cake has never been easier or more delicious!
