Beautiful pinks and delicate flavors make these roasted raspberry cupcakes from Grandbaby Cakes not only delicious, but perfect for upcoming Valentines Day!
Today we’re talking cupcakes. Not just any cupcakes, but light -and- fluffy raspberry cupcakes with a frosting that is naturally colored with raspberries, so it’s pink!
So I have to tell you guys about a wonderful cookbook I’m loving – Grandbaby Cakes: Modern Recipes, Vintage Charm, Soulful Memories written by one of my blogging friends Jocelyn Delk Adams of the blog Grandbaby-Cakes. The book is full of decadent dessert recipes, all with rich family history and stories accompanying them.
Last year I had the pleasure of spending time with Jocelyn in Chicago and Kohler. I love when I get to meet internet friends in real life, it’s nice putting a ‘face’ to a ‘blog’. Jocelyn is super vivacious and if you are lucky enough to spend any time with her, you’ll immediately be drawn in by her outgoing personality and want to pick up a copy of her cookbook and get to baking!

When I received the Grandbaby Cakes Cookbook and was looking through it, I had the hardest time deciding what I wanting to make, because every single dessert sounded incredible – from cinnamon roll pound cake, Mississippi mudslide cake to these roasted raspberry cupcakes, I want to make/bake/eat them ALL!! I also love how the directions are super descriptive and really walk you through the baking process, so even if you’re a novice baker I would suggest this cookbook.
To make these cupcakes you’re going to roast raspberries – something I had never done before, but something that I will definitely start doing now all the time – it gives the raspberries an even better flavor. Then you make the batter for the cupcakes and bake them and make a super pretty frosting. Aren’t these cupcakes just so pretty to look at? As you can tell they were divoured in our house!
I would highly recommend buying this gorgeous cookbook, and the next time you’re in need of dessert (hint hint – Valentine’s day is coming up) these cupcakes should be the front runner! Recipe shared with permission from Grandbaby Cakes by Jocelyn Delk Adams, Agate Surrey, 2015
