15 Berry Delicious Ways to Bake with Fresh Raspberries

Nothing says summer like fresh raspberries

What’s your favorite way to use fresh raspberries?

When it comes to summertime baking, raspberries are a must. Fresh, juicy, and delicious, they add sweetness (and a little bit of tartness) to everything from scratch-made pies to gooey chocolate brownies. Use them in ice pops, layered between phyllo dough, or on top of a moist and delicious cake — the possibilities are near endless.

We love raspberries so much that we decided to make them the theme of this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme). We put the Culinary Content Network and The Daily Meal Staff to the test using fresh, ripe Driscoll’s raspberries. Here are the highlights:

Triple Berry Popsicles
Simi of Turmeric n’ Spice created these gorgeous ice pops. The best part? You can make them two different ways; the alternate version includes a layer of vanilla ice cream for a creamy and delicious treat.

Raspberry ‘Sushi’ Roll
Linda and Christina of 2 Cookin’ Mamas score big points for creativity; they created a moist and delicious chocolate cake (with a creamy cheesecake filling) that’s rolled up to look like sushi. This tasty treat is stuffed with Driscoll’s raspberries and served with a scratch-made raspberry dipping sauce for the full sushi effect.

Pavlova with Raspberries and Dark Chocolate Chips
The Daily Meal’s City Guide Editor, Kate Kolenda, wowed us with this rustic vanilla Pavlova. Topped with fresh raspberries and dark chocolate chips, this is one dessert that we’d like a second helping of, please!

Raspberry Lemonade Cupcakes
This week’s winning recipe comes from Miranda of Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt. She amazed us with her take on raspberry lemonade — these raspberry-stuffed cupcakes are perfect for any summertime picnic or cookout.
