It’s practically summertime here in Southern California and there’s beautiful berries everywhere. Everywhere I look from supermarkets, to farmer’s markets and roadside stands all I see are berries. It’s my personal observation that strawberries always seem to get top billing with blueberries and raspberries coming in at a close second. It appears to me that the blackberry just doesn’t get the same notoriety as it’s cohorts. Since today was designated as a baking day, I thought I would show the blackberry a little love and make it the star of this particular baking project.

I found that this cake tasted even better when I added a nice dollop of freshly whipped cream to it and then sprinkled it with a few juicy blackberries. This rustic, homey dessert is best when served warm from the oven.

  1. Hands down, the blackberries is a firm favourite in our home. Considering we had 1.5kg during the height of summer (when blackberry picking,) it’s safe to say this would be a firm favourite too. Beautiful photos, they make me wish I were a spoon about to dive in!

  2. You are right about the strawberries. I just love blackberries! Come August, our cottage in the country is surrounded by them. There are so many that we share them with the deer, who also love them! This blackberry cake is at the top of my list come August! Beautiful!!
