raspberry doughgen~

 Dear Hubby and the guys down at the steam plant in the paper mill needed something sweet for dessert tonight.... so I whipped up a raspberry doughgen with some of my frozen berries from this last summer. 

This is an old recipe that was handed down to me by my Aunt Margie.  I've altered it over the years by adding vanilla and doubling the flour, egg and milk.  When Margie made it ~ it was very thin; but I found I like it a tad bit thicker. 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  While the oven is warming up in a 9x13 cake pan melt 1/4 cup or 1/2 stick of butter.
Also, while the oven is warming and the butter is melting ~ whisk together the batter:

2 Cups of flour
2 Cups of milk
2 whole eggs
1 tsp. vanilla emulsion or vanilla extract
1/3 Cup of white granulated sugar

Pour this batter into the hot melted butter ~ like a yorkshire pudding:

Next top with 4 cups of raspberries (fresh or frozen) ... blueberries or blackberries also work great in this recipe.
Top with another 2/3 Cup of sugar sprinkled evenly over the berries.

Bake for 30 minutes until the berries are all soaked up in the sugar and butter and the batter has set.

Best eaten warm!  
Enjoy with a dollop of whipping cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Now what can I eat?  I'll go have some yogurt with granola sprinkled on top.... maybe a few frozen raspberries too.  

Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. so good...yummmmm...BUT
    same aunt Margie but my recipe, revised also, is so different....I need to try your Good Eats

  2. Mel ~ I'm so proud of you for making the best goodies for others and still you're maintaining the willpower to resist. Love ya!

  3. Oh Mel--I am so proud of you. How can you make that delicious dish and not eat it???? I don't think I would have that kind of will-power.. You are amazing!!!

    The raspberry doughgen sounds wonderful. I'd definitely put some 'nilla ice cream on mine!!!!! ha

    It's snowing like crazy here today.

  4. That does sound delicious but I'm like you, I love frozen raspberries with yogurt.

  5. I come often Sherry comes every day, leaves with a recipe! Knock it off. LOL

    But she ain't been to a hog killing since she was a kid, we ain't makin bacon. (Well..)
    I mena like you next entry!

  6. Thank you so much, Mel, for the doughgen recipe! That is something that I know my father-in-law would enjoy. It's been a while since I've made him any goodies...think that is about to change. ;)

  7. Thank you for this wonderful recipe. My father, Shawn Morgan, and myself went berry picking today even though it is a little late in the season for raspberries. We found some, and also found that most of the blackberries are not ripe yet. We have enough to make a doughgen :) It was accidental that my dad found this because he also works at the mill! He was complaining and said "hey! I work at the mill, why didn't I get any doughen?" So now we are on a mission to make some, and hopefully share it with the guys down there! Thank you!!
