This isn't just an ordinary recipe post. This one's special .... for a special friend! Cathy over at Lemon Tree Dwelling is having a baby girl soon, so we're celebrating by throwing her a Virtual Baby Shower!


I took my inspiration for the Raspberry Lemon Bundt Cake from Cathy herself! If you haven't ever been over to her blog, you just have to check her out! She always has the most mouth-watering dishes and tempting treats!! A little over a week ago, she shared a recipe for {No Bake) Lemon Raspberry Meltaways. I love the flavor combo and the colors! It seemed perfect for Spring and for a new baby girl! I decided to take that flavor combo and create a dessert that looks like you fussed, but it's really easy! 

This Raspberry Ripple Lemon Bundt Cake starts with a lemon cake mix. A package of lemon pudding mix help keep the cake nice and moist - and it gives that extra punch of lemon flavor. To keep things easy, I used raspberry preserves and raspberry extract for the ripple.

Be sure to read all the way to the end to see what everyone else is sharing! There are 21 more recipes for the Virtual Baby Shower!

Printable recipe
Yield: 12 servings

For the cake:
1 box (18.25 oz.) lemon cake mix
1 package (3.4 oz.) instant lemon pudding mix
¾ cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
1 cup lemon-lime flavored soft drink (such as Sprite)
⅓ cup seedless red raspberry preserves
½ tsp. raspberry extract

For the glaze:
5 tbsp. heavy cream
1 cup powdered sugar
¼ tsp. raspberry extract

Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease and flour a 10-in. Bundt pan. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix and pudding mix. Add the vegetable oil, eggs and soft drink; mix until well combined. 

Remove about 1 cup of the batter to a small mixing bowl. To the 1 cup of batter, stir in the preserves and raspberry extract. Place half of the lemon batter in the Bundt pan. Carefully and evenly, top with the raspberry batter. Pour the remaining lemon batter over the top of the raspberry batter. 

Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center tests clean. Allow to cool 7-10 minutes in the pan, then flip it out onto a serving platter to cool completely. 

Once the cake has cooled, mix all of the glaze ingredients in a small bowl with a wire whisk until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the cake.
