Raspberry Cream Squares
There's no sin in eating it: The pieces contain little fat and are lower in calories on the pastry scale. And why do you feel better after eating them? Because the raspberries can activate serotonin, the messenger of happiness.
The raspberry cream cake can also be prepared with thawed, drained frozen raspberries without any loss of flavour; the fruits are deep-frozen directly after harvesting, preserving their vitamins.
