Can you put fresh Raspberries in the cake mix?

As professional culinary experts, we always recommend using fresh produce fruits as the ingredient. Use fresh raspberries, especially if they need to be chopped and folded within the cake batter. Decorations also look better with ripe fresh raspberries. However, for a Raspberry puree or jam, you can also use frozen or canned ones.

What is a Mary Jane Cake?

A classic Mary Jane cake is a small, round sponge cake. It has a few indentations on the top for decoration or placing fresh fruits. It can be created in any flavor, i.e Chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, Raspberry, etc. It is served in individual portions.

How do you store Raspberry Cake?

We recommend consuming the cake while it’s fresh and as early as possible. But if you have leftovers, wrap them tightly with plastic and store them in an airtight container. This will prevent the formation of mold and the rotting of the fruit. Consume within 1 to 2 days.

Can you put frozen raspberries in a cake?

If the recipe requires chopped raspberries with cake batter, use fresh ones because they will release comparatively less moisture and juice. Frozen ones tend to soften up and upset the moisture balance of the cake mix. However, you can use frozen raspberries to make the puree and jam or mix in the Whipped cream for topping.
