Prep Time



Total Time






cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
teaspoon baking powder
cup sugar
cup fat-free milk
tablespoons tub-style 60% to 70% vegetable oil spread
cups Cascadian Farm® frozen raspberries, thawed and undrained
Small lemon wedges (optional)
Fresh mint leaves (optional)
Raspberry Sauce
cup sugar
teaspoon cornstarch
teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
  1. Allow eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, grease a 9x9x2-inch baking pan. Line pan with waxed paper. Grease and flour waxed paper; set pan aside. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and 1 teaspoon of the lemon peel; set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with an electric mixer on high speed about 4 minutes or until thick. Gradually add sugar, beating on medium speed for 4 to 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture; beat on low to medium speed just until combined.
  3. In a small saucepan, heat and stir milk and vegetable oil spread until spread melts; add to batter, beating until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center of cake comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Invert cake onto wire rack lined with waxed paper; carefully peel off top waxed paper and cool completely.
  5. Meanwhile, for raspberry sauce: Place half of the raspberries and their juices in a medium bowl. Mash berries with a potato masher. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, and the remaining ½ teaspoon lemon peel. Add mashed raspberries. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Cool about 10 minutes. Stir in remaining half of the raspberries and their juices.
  6. Cut cake into 12 pieces. Split each cake piece in half horizontally. Place cake piece bottoms on individual dessert plates. Spoon half of the raspberry sauce over cake bottoms. Top with cake piece tops. Spoon remaining sauce onto cakes. If desired, garnish with lemon wedges and mint leaves.
