If you need an easy but elegant dessert to serve this spring, look no further than this beautiful Easy Raspberry Lemon Bundt Cake.
I love taking a regular cake mix and doctoring it up with a few special ingredients. In this case, I used the ingredients required on the box, along with some lemon zest, sour cream, vanilla pudding mix and fresh raspberries.
And then there’s that cream cheese frosting. It’s also got a hint of lemon flavor, and if you’re the type to eat frosting with a spoon, it’s a pretty tasty dessert on it’s own.
While not required, some fresh raspberries and a few sprigs of mint on top make for a beautiful presentation.
By the time you’ve baked and served this cake, no one will suspect you didn’t make the entire thing from scratch. Nobody has to know how easy it was!
If you prefer, the cream cheese frosting could be replaced by whipped cream. Although I highly recommend the cream cheese frosting!
And if you’re not a fan of lemon, you could always opt to start with a plain white or yellow cake mix. There are plenty of ways to adapt this recipe, and I’m sure they’d all be delicious.
My family gave this cake rave reviews, and devoured the whole thing in about 25 hours. I had to hide a piece just to ensure I got a second serving!
Whether it’s Mother’s Day, Easter, or just any old day of the week, this Easy Raspberry Lemon Bundt Cake is a must make this spring!

Tips for Choosing and Storing Raspberries
Appearance: Look for berries that are bright and uniform in color. Avoid berries that look dull, dark, wrinkled or dried out. Be sure to check the container for crushed or moldy berries–don’t forget to check the bottom too!
Storing: Do not wash raspberries until you are ready to use them. Store them in the container you bought them in, or some type of breathable container. Avoid keeping them in the coldest part of your fridge.
To freeze raspberries, arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place them in the freezer for a few hours, then pour the frozen berries into a large zip-top plastic bag or container. Frozen berries will keep for up to 10 months.
