  • 1/4 cup almond paste

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 3/4 cup sour cream 

  • 4 cups flour 

  • 1 1/4 tsp. baking soda 

  • 1 1/4 tsp. baking powder

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 tsp. almond extract

  6. Spray a bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray. Add 1/2 the raspberries to the bottom of the pan.

  7. Place half the cake batter in the pan and pat down along the center, making a dent. Add the cream cheese filling along the indentation, and then top it with the remaining batter. Smooth the batter down so it is even.

  8. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
