- In a mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat 4 ounces of butter with 3/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Beat in egg until well blended.

Add remaining dry mixture and beat until smooth.
- Spread the batter in the prepared baking pan and then scatter raspberries evenly over the top of the batter.
