Blackberry Cake

Once I saw this recipe for yellow cake with berries, it was in my belly within 48 hours. The flavors were simple and delicious…a perfect summer treat.
Blackberry Cake
serves about 8/adapted from this recipe  

Here’s what I used: 

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup plus 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs (room temperature)
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 pint blackberries (rinsed, dried and coated in a little flour)

Here’s what I did: 

  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt – set aside.
  2. Beat butter until smooth, and then mix in the cup of sugar.
  3. Beat in vanilla.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, until thoroughly mixed.
  5. Add half of the dry mixture and mix until combined.
  6. Mix in the milk.
  7. Add remaining dry mixture and combine completely.
  8. Pour batter into a prepared 9″ round pan.
  9. Sprinkle fruit on top of batter and cover with the remaining 2 teaspoons of sugar.
  10. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.
  11. Cool in pan for about 15 minutes and then flip cake on a platter to cool completely.
