Lemon Raspberry Sweetheart Cake (Gluten Free)

by Tenina Holder

Yes, it is that time of year already…and I am still sporting the Christmas lights out front! (Inside Christmas has long gone, but cannot get DH to bring them down…so much {boating} to do, so little time!)

So I apologise for the lateness of the arrival of this recipe in your inbox…hoping you are subscribed and that these little pearls of wisdom arrive with no effort on your part each time I post. If you are not, go to the right of screen and subscribe immediately. It means you will never miss out on a single thing that is going on in my recipe life! (Unless you want to keep it that way of course!)

So dear H….one for you, not involving gluten, chocolate, or Crio Bru…just for you!
