Favorite use for a bunch of raspberries?

They don't keep well, and I'd love to do something with them today. I always can make jam, of course, but what are your other favorite ideas? Any great ideas for the potluck I have to attend tonight? Good raspberry syrup recipe I can use later for soda or cocktails? Thanks!

  1. muddled into a mojito is nice, blended into a margarita or if you have an ice cream machine I recommend a sorbet. Then when you have a lime marg, mojito or soda water, throw a scoop in!

    1. Raspberry peach cobbler? This is much better than it looks like it'll be. It's my quick to-to for potlucks if I have fresh fruit.

      1. I like a dish of raspberries with a dollop of sour cream and brown sugar dip.

        1. I've been recommending this cake ever since I made it a couple of weeks ago - so simple, but SO good!

            Yes on this recipe! I would definitely use more raspberries than it calls for.

              Ended up going with this cake, eating a bunch fresh, and making freezer jam with the last of em. The cake was a big hit at the potluck-I'll definitely make again. Thanks all!

              This is very similar to the SK cake. It's a great recipe.

                Not just similar, exactly the same, because it's the recipe the Smitten Kitchen blogger used. She added lemon zest (and lists it as optional), but that's the only change she made.

                  Oops. I haven't looked at the smitten kitchen recipe in a while!

                  1. re: Caitlin McGrath

                    Yes, I always try to go back to the original source when I post recipes - it's a pet peeve of mine when bloggers get/take credit for recipes that belong to others!

                    1. re: biondanonima

                      Well, to be fair, SK is very clear where she got the recipe.

                      1. re: girlwonder88

                        I looked at both recipes and made the SK version with lemon zest (and some blueberries in addition to the rasperries). HIghly recommend!

                You can freeze them, too
