50 Raspberry Recipes That Are Tart, Sweet and Oh So Simple
Why should strawberries get all the attention? Don’t get us wrong, we love them too (and the same goes for sweet blueberries and mouth-puckering blackberries). But we’re pretty darn obsessed with raspberries and their signature tart-sweet flavor. Since they’re about to be at peak deliciousness, here are 50 raspberry recipes to make while they’re in season.
3. Blueberry, Blackberry and Raspberry Soufflés
So light, so airy, so…intimidating. Don’t sweat it though: The key is to not overmix the batter and be gentle with the soufflés from start to finish.
5. Bite-Size Almond Raspberry Spoon Cakes
Does it get more adorable than a tiny confection baked into a spoon? We think not. We dare you to have just one (heck, let’s make it three).
6. Blackberry-Raspberry Skillet Cobbler
Want to make the most of the presentation? First, prepare it in a cast-iron skillet to give the dessert a rustic vibe. Next, drag a spoon through the batter on top before baking for a marbled look.
8. Gluten-Free Lemon-Raspberry Pavlova
This divine double-decker is beyond elegant. The layers of three-ingredient meringue are held together by store-bought lemon curd, raspberry jam and fresh berries.
9. Raspberry-Lime Champagne Punch
The party don’t start ’til the bubbly is popped. With the addition of vodka, lime juice, tonic and raspberries, this citrusy sipper is bound to keep you refreshed on a hot day in the yard.
10. Raspberry Crepe Cake
To save time, make the crepes in advance and store them in the fridge until you’re ready to assemble them with raspberry jam and whipped cream.
11. Sourdough with Whipped Cottage Cheese and Raspberry Chia Jam
You only *think* you hate cottage cheese. After a few spins in the food processor, its curd-like texture turns fluffy and smooth. Its creamy, mild flavor is just the match for zingy raspberry jam.
19. Cheater’s Brioche Buns with Fruity Glaze
You may think homemade bread is a tall order, but this recipe wants to prove you wrong. The fluffy buns have far less butter than standard brioche, so the dough is less high-maintenance. Doused in raspberry glaze, it’s more like a baked, yeasted doughnut.
20. Pink Lemonade Bars
How do these citrusy bars get their pretty color, you ask? Chalk it up to freshly puréed raspberries. Don’t be shy with the powdered sugar on top.
23. Raspberry Choux Puffs
Consider it a trip to Paris, minus the flight. Savor these light-as-air puff pastries filled with vanilla-passionfruit crème pâtissière and raspberries like we do and pretend you’re at the Eiffel Tower.
24. Peanut Butter Cream Pie with Raspberry Meringue
You won’t even need to fuss with fresh fruit to pull off those pink whisps of meringue. The secret is freeze-dried raspberries.
30. Buttery Raspberry Crumble Bars
Aka the lazy baker’s shortcut to satiating a pie craving. The filling not only gets half a cup of raspberry jam, but it also calls for a whole peach and a ton of fresh raspberries.
31. Mango Coconut Berry Breakfast Lassi
Spare five minutes in the morning to make this Indian-inspired sipper. The secret to its unique, piney flavor? Ground cardamom.
32. Raspberry Coffee Cake
Sour cream in the batter offers tang and guarantees a moist cake. If you don’t have sour cream, feel free to substitute buttermilk, yogurt or kefir.
34. Raspberry Banana Greek Yogurt Parfaits with Chia and Peanut Butter Granola
Odds are you have all five ingredients needed to make the granola. Whip up a big batch on a Sunday, so all you have to do every weekday is assemble the parfaits with yogurt and fruit.
35. Lemon Raspberry Prosecco Float
We’re refreshed just looking at these beauties. Despite you being able to whip them up in a flash, your dinner party guests will be totally wowed, promise.
36. White Chocolate Chip Berry Cheesecake Dip
Warning: Your kids might just devour the entire bowl in 30 seconds. Serve it with graham crackers, gingersnaps, cinnamon chips or pretzels for dipping.
37. Arugula Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette
There’s always a bottle of store-bought raspberry vinaigrette in your fridge. But have you ever tried making it yourself? Blending fresh or frozen berries into the dressing lets their fruity flavor shine even brighter.
38. Raspberry Gooey Butter Cookies
This tart twist on gooey butter cake is truly divine, but it has a timesaving, top-secret ingredient. (OK, OK, we’ll tell you—it’s white cake mix.)
39. Raspberry Lemon Brioche Rolls with Whipped Ricotta Cream
TBH, we’d yank ourselves out of bed at the crack of dawn for these beauties. If you have the time, let the dough rise in the fridge overnight instead of on the counter for an hour.
40. Raspberry Macarons with Chocolate Ganache
They’re nutty, crispy, fruity, decadent and downright adorable. You can skip the pink food coloring if you’d like—the freeze-dried raspberries will color the cookies just fine.
42. Whole Wheat Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Muffins
Your kids will be so psyched to find one of these in their lunchbox. And they’ll never guess that they’re low in sugar with so many chocolate chips in the mix.
44. Honey Raspberry Brie Crostini with Basil Oil
Don’t worry about hunting down basil oil at the supermarket. It’s a cinch to make yourself in your handy-dandy blender.
46. Raspberry Chicken
It only takes a few choice ingredients to make this impeccably balanced dish. The sweet-tart sauce is an ideal match for the salty soda cracker-Parmesan breading.
48. Raspberry Swirl Pound Cake
Want to make this easy dessert even easier? Trade the vanilla glaze for a simple dusting of powdered sugar.
49. Black Raspberry Pie Milkshakes with Black Raspberry Fudge
Did you know black raspberries and blackberries are two different fruits? Black raspberries taste like a rich, tart hybrid of both.
50. Raspberry Brownies
When in doubt, you can never go wrong pairing raspberries with chocolate. Fresh or frozen berries will both work like a charm.
