Recipe modified from "Celebrate with Cake" article in Beer Advocate #100.

Changed out 2row with DME.

Thinking of adding lactose along the way to sweeten it up a little, since there is so much dark specialty grain.

Thinking of splitting up the batch in secondary and doing 1 gal on oak, 1 gal on raspberries. Hbt thread suggests less than 3 lbs frozen per 5 gals...others say to use 1lb per gal...

Could also use vanilla bean in the base beer or separately...

After second glance im not sure where this recipe comes from. The cake idea was from the magazine but this recipe does not resemble the original recipe posted in the mag. This appears to be some combination of some RIS recipe, combined with my VBS recipe, and who knows what else....

originally had this as an extract beer but i have an extra 1 lb of 2row sitting around and plus i will need to do some level of mashing in order to incorporate the cake!
