Blackberry Cake #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone!

Today for #SundaySupper we had to make a recipe to bring to a barbecue! One thing I never brought to a barbecue was cake! So I thought hmmmmm, why not bring cake? I was at the Farmers Market and I saw the sweetest, most plump blackberries ever and I thought, yup these would be perfect for my cake. Off to the kitchen I ran and after whipping, beating and baking I had a beautiful, low-calorie cake that would please any blackberry lover, like me!
Blackberry Cake
This cake is light, full of flavor, sweet and mighty delicious! You get a taste of a juicy blackberry in every bite!! Not only is it yummy, but it is also very easy to make and low-calorie too! I am in cake heaven with today’s recipe!! I love simple cake recipes like this!
Blackberry Cake
The cake is super easy to make too! I just whipped my eggs, sugar, vanilla until it’s light and fluffy, then I added my flour mixture and carefully spread it in my springform pan. The hardest part about the recipe is spreading the batter. The batter is kind of thick. Then I added my juicy, sweet blackberries that has been soaking in lemon juice and sugar. I baked it in the oven for 40 minutes and it was done. The key to this cake is letting it rest so all the flavors come together! It also travels very well too! Perfect for bringing to a party!

    Blackberry Cake
    This cake tastes amazing sprinkled with a little powdered sugar and a dollop of whip cream, but it’s also darn good served with a side of vanilla ice cream, my favorite! Funny, as much as I love blackberries, I rarely every buy them, but after tasting how sweet blackberries are right now, I need more!!  trust me and go pick up some blackberries!  I can’t get over how sweet they are!
