They are easy to work with like raspberries or blueberries, blackberries, kiwi, mangom orange lemon, strawberries or guavas. These fruits give desserts an acid, fresh and original touch.

Raspberry crumble pound cake recipe

When my sister and I made this dessert, we made it one afternoon and left it there on the table and left because we had some errands to run.

We came back to a crime scene. My dad and brother had eaten it ALL, they didn´t even take it out of the pan, they just ate it like that, spoonful by spoonful, and left the evidence on the kitchen island. They said that once they tried it, they could not stop. 

I didn’t even got the chance to take pictures of it for you hahaha, besides, my sister and I both wanted to try it. So the next day we bought some more raspberries and we made it again, and this time I did take all the pics i wanted, though I didn’t eat as much of it as I would have wanted to, since my brother and dad ate almost half of it by themselves.
