Raspberry Compote – Fruit Filling Recipe

Raspberry Compote for Cake Filling

My all time favorite cake filling is a fresh raspberry compote.  I particularly love it because you can adjust the amount of sugar to the sweetness level you like.  Since I don’t care for things that are super sweet I keep the sugar level to a minimum, this way the beautiful fresh fruit flavor shines through!   I’ve never been a huge fan of jam for cake filling because it’s too sweet for me.

This recipe is for fresh raspberry compote but it can be adapted for any fruit or berry.  Mix different fruits and berries for more amazing flavor combinations! You can use fresh or frozen fruit as well.  Of course fresh is best but sometimes that just isn’t possible or practical.

I prefer very few seeds in my raspberry compote. If you like the seeds for texture you don’t have to strain any out.  I usually strain most of them out and leave a few for texture and visual appeal.  You can also choose to go seedless if you don’t like any seeds at all.

I also have a recipe for Fresh Fruit Compote >>> Here <<<  Really the only difference is that It’s a little more generalized for any fruit while this one is specifically talking about a fresh raspberry compote.

Keep in mind that this is an UNPRESERVED fruit filling.  Unlike a jam filling, this raspberry compote needs to be refrigerated for food safety.  It’s best to keep the cake refrigerated until an hour or so before serving and should not be left unrefrigerated longer than 4 hours. It also freezes beautifully!  I often make twice as much as I will need for an order so I can have some on hand in the freezer for those pesky last minute orders.

Fresh raspberry compote is divine in my Vanilla Sponge Cake!  Top it off with a fresh raspberry Swiss buttercream and you will be in heaven!
