Summer fun always includes cooking with fresh fruits and vegetables. For me, raspberries are high on my list of delicious seasonal fruits. They’re right up there with strawberries and watermelon. I eat all of them as often as possible while they’re fresh and easily available. This Raspberry Skillet Cake makes a nice treat for breakfast, bunch, or dessert.

When I was little my mom grew raspberries in her garden (along with a lot of other fruits and vegetables). I used to love going out on summer mornings to pick berries to add to my cereal or a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Raspberries taste good in almost any dish, but Raspberry Skillet Cake is simple, easy, and delicious.
Raspberries always feel like such a delicacy with their delicate appearance and feel. Also, they go bad rather quickly—they only stay fresh for 2 or 3 days in the refrigerator. Raspberry Skillet Cake is a tasty way to enjoy your delicious summer raspberry bounty.
