This is a lovely show off cake, especially when you want a fancy finale to a dinner party. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar over top just before serving to make it look even more attractive and delectable.

Raspberry Nut Cake


  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup ground walnuts
  • 3/4 cup ground pecans



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9 inch tube pan.

Separate the eggs. In a bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the butter with the sugar until thoroughly creamed.

Beat in the egg yolks, then the jam, vanilla extract, and dark rum.

In a small bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder. Beat the flour mixture into the creamed mixture, then stir in the nuts.

Stir about 1/3 of the beaten egg whites into the batter to lighten it and then fold in the rest gently but thoroughly.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 65 to 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Transfer to a rack to cool. Makes about 12 servings.
