Cheese and Raspberry Squares

These tasty little treats are the brainchild of a late night epiphany. Combining the heart stopping goodness of a dense cake with the tang of lemon and raspberry these squares are a real heart stopper. Add some large lumps of fatty homemade cheese, which soak up the flavour of the fruits accentuating them, and you have the closest thing I can think of to a sin in culinary form. 

A big thanks to Alicia for making this image normal coloured, far more appetizing!
