We thought it was long overdue for a new cake recipe on Lovefoodies. Afterall, it's been a month or so since we last shared a new cake with you all and if you've been following us for a while, you will know we have a huge collection of delicious cakes, ranging from coconut cakes, poke cakes, fruit cakes, pound cakes, the list goes on!

So we came up with a lovely flavor combination marble cake, made up of raspberries and vanilla.

You may have seen marble cakes traditionally baked in a loaf pan, usually made up of chocolate and vanilla. We decided to use 2 round pans, and make a sandwich with a simple vanilla whipped cream frosting in between and on the outside.

It's a really easy recipe, using our basic vanilla cake recipe, and then dividing the cake batter in two, and adding mashed raspberries to one half of the batter.

The texture of this cake is soft and moist. When you bite into the cake, it actually tastes like a creamy raspberry milkshake! So in hindsight, I probably should have called this our raspberry milkshake cake!

You get a slight sharp tangy taste from the raspberries, combined with the sweetness from the vanilla, and then the freshly whipped cream and grated white chocolate. All together, the flavors are bursting in every bite! Its an absolutely delicious cake!

You can use other soft fruits, such as strawberries, to give you a strawberry and vanilla cake, or even add some crushed walnuts to one half with some chocolate chips!

This fruity raspberry vanilla marble cake would be a lovely cake to serve at a birthday party, or an afternoon tea party, or any other celebration such as a baby shower. Because we've used fresh whipped cream for the frosting, the cake does need to be eaten either on the same day or the next day.

If you want to make it ahead, by all means, leave the whipped cream frosting until you want to serve and the cakes can be frozen until you're ready.

An alternative to whipped cream frosting is to use a simple vanilla buttercream frosting such as in our walnut cake recipe. The quantities there will be the same as what you'll need for this cake.

So let's get to the recipe and see how easy it is to make a different flavored marble cake. Please enjoy!
