Fresh Summer Berry Cake! Its officially summer and with it has brought on one of the best seasons of all; berry picking season! So what better to celebrate the occasion than a simple yet utterly delicious cake that perfectly pairs with fresh picked berries?! Don't worry I've got you covered!
This summer has been one for the record books! First I helped plan and organize a wonderful camp for the young women in our LDS church's stake which has been months of preparation and ended with camping in the Mountains! It was so fun and I can't wait to do it again next year! I arrived home from camp and in less than 48 hours flew out with my 9 month old daughter Portlynn so that she could meet all my family for the first time!
I am an Arizona native and 3 years ago my parents and 5 of my 6 siblings who still lived at home all up and moved across the country to Washington state! While I miss them terribly I have to admit that visiting them in the ever green state is always so much fun! You know the quote "home is where your Mom is?" Even though she lives in a different house and I'm now married with 4 kids that saying still rings true every time I visit! While there my Mother and I ( OK mostly just my Mother) baked up a storm. Including this fresh berry cake!
We went to a local farm The Ahtanum Berry Patch and picked these fresh blackberries by the bucket full! We ate them off the vines as we went and we all left with red stained fingertips and big grins on our faces!
I love this recipe for so many reasons! You can use any berry that you choose and its seriously so simple! Fresh berry cake for dinner, lunch, breakfast! There really isn't a bad time to eat fresh berry cake am I right?! I personally prefer to eat anytime after 8 pm when my kids are all fast asleep SHH...
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!! for any questions or comments be sure to leave them below! If you happen to whip one up for yourself be sure to let me know how it turned out!!
