Ingredients

Cake

  • 15.25 oz. white cake mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 c . milk
  • 1/2 c . water
  • 1/4 c . butter melted
  • 2 tsp . vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tsp . almond extract*

Filling

  • 21 oz. can raspberry pie filling

Frosting

  • 8 oz package cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 c . butter softened
  • 3 c . powdered sugar
  • 2-3 T . milk
  • 1 tsp . vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp . almond extract
  • Raspberries
  • Sliced Almonds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, eggs, milk, water, butter, and extracts on low for 30 seconds.
  • Turn speed up to medium, and mix together for 1-2 minutes, or until combined.
  • Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Using the handle of a wooden spoon (or similar instrument), poke holes in the cake (I poke about 35).
  • Pour the fruit filling over warm cake, gently spreading as necessary.
  • Let cake cool to room temperature.
  • To make the frosting, beat together cream cheese and butter until combined.
  • Add powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon milk, and extracts. Beat together until well-combined.
  • Mix in milk to reach desired consistency.
  • Spread frosting over room temperature cake. The easiest way to do this is to drop frosting evenly over cake and then gently spread to combine.
  • Chill until ready to serve.
  • Just before serving, top with fresh raspberries and sliced almonds.
  • Cover and chill any leftovers.

Notes

*Use 1 teaspoon for a mild almond flavor or up to 2 teaspoons for a more pronounced almond flavor.
