I read a recipe recently that sounded super yummy, but I didn't have all the ingredients and since I was baking with my boys, I had to adapt to a minor mishap- in the end, we had a delicious Saturday morning breakfast.
Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Cream 1/2 c butter with 2 c sugar ... when I bring out my beaters, the boys arrive at my side with their little step stools and the helping begins!
Add 1 egg and 1 tsp vanilla until well combined.
In a separate bowl, place 2 c raspberries. Mix in 1/4 c flour to lightly coat the berries. By doing this, the berry coloring will not bleed into the cake.
Mix together 2 c flour, 2 tsp baking powder and a pinch of salt and then add to the raspberries. At this point my little helper turned the beaters on high and we had a beautiful, bright red batter. No problem, tastes the same. The number one rule in baking with your kiddos after safety is ADAPT!
At this point mix in 1/2 c buttermilk to the batter.
Prepare a 8x8 square baking pan and pour the batter in.
Sprinkle some sugar on top and bake for 45 minutes. Let it cool for a few moments and then serve!
