Love raspberries? This spin on the classic really takes the (pound) cake. It starts with a simple homemade raspberry jam, made with fresh berries, citrus and, of course sugar. We used Domino Golden Sugar, which is less-processed than white sugar and has a distinct hint of molasses flavor. The finished product is sweet, and tart, and so good we just had to use it—both in the cake itself, and in the frosting on top.

- Preheat oven to 325°. Lightly grease a 9”-x-5” loaf pan with butter and line with parchment paper.
- Make raspberry jam: In a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, bring raspberries, cornstarch, sugar, orange peel and juice, and salt to a simmer and let cook for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Remove from heat, discard orange peel, pour into bowl, and cool completely for at least 20 minutes. (To speed this up, place bowl of jam over an ice bath.)

- Meanwhile, in a large bowl using a hand-mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and 1 ½ cups sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, scraping down bowl as needed, and beat until fluffy and mixture has doubled in size, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla and mix until incorporated.

Repeat with remaining batter and jam, then sprinkle remaining tablespoon of sugar on top.
