Moelleux aux Framboises

I haven't done much baking lately. Been too hot, and not much fun baking for one! Friends coming for tea so decided to make something my friend in France used to make - a raspberry moelleux. The word moelleux means smooth or creamy, but it's used as a type of dessert too.

You need: 180g sr flour, 1 tspn baking powder, 400g raspberries, 160g caster sugar, 1 small pot natural yoghurt ,3 eggs, 100ml vegetable oil, icing sugar

Preheat oven 180C/gas4                  Grease a 20cm square tin well and line base.

Beat the eggs and sugar together till fluffy. Add the yoghurt and oil and mix in. Fold in the flour and baking powder gently. Spoon into the tin and cover with the raspberries. Press them down gently with the back of a spoon. Bake for 25 mins. Mark the cake into slices then cool on a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar.


The 'cake' is lovely and soft; the centre is smooth and a good contrast to the raspberries. Makes a good dessert with ice cream or a delicious cake with a cuppa.

I'm very fond of a moelleux, especially for dessert, and there are some fine raspberries available at the moment so this is just right. I totally agree that it's been too hot to bake but it's great to bake for friends. The problem I have is that every friend around here refuses to eat cake these days because they're on some kind of health routine or diet.

That’s sad Phil. One piece of cake won’t do much damage to a diet, but it will give a lot of pleasure!
