Directions

Cream
To make the Raspberry Pound Cake:
Set an oven rack in the lower 1/3 of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9 by 5 by3-inch loaf pan.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, orange zest, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk to combine. In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together the sugar and butter until blended, about 30 seconds. With the machine running, add the eggs 1 at a time. Add the vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients, a small amount at a time, until just incorporated. Using a rubber spatula, fold the drained raspberries evenly into the batter.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 55 to 60 minutes. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. (Cake may deflate in the center during cooling)

To make the Vin Santo Cream:
In a large bowl, beat the cream until it holds soft peaks.

Add the vanilla extract, powdered sugar, and Vin Santo. Continue to beat mixture until cream holds stiff peaks.

Transfer the pound cake to a serving platter. Slice and serve with the Vin Santo Cream.

    Haven't made it yet as I just turned on the tv & came in on the middle of the show. I looked it up on the computer & I'm confused by the only review, "Very delicious! Easy to make as well!" and KewlChef only gave it 3 out of 5 stars. Then how "very delicious & easy to make" was it??? Did anyone else bake this & have a review that agrees with their rating stars (good or bad? Thanks. P.S. I had to put in a "star" rating or it won't let me post this! So based on prior Giada recipes I have made....I gave it 5 stars.

    Very delicious! Easy to make as well! Instead of the cream topping I took some left over frozen raspberries, added a little water and sugar, and blended them together. A great topping that I wouldn't have to worry about re-whipping!
