It’s Berry, Berry Good Cake!


Do you admire a cake that also equals as dessert? Well if the answer is yes; look no further than this excellent tasting mixed berry cake. You could serve slices with whipped cream and a mixed berry sauce, or custard; whatever floats your boat!



I wouldn’t declare this is one of the prettiest cakes around with its homemade ragged style top, but to me this cake makes a statement. It’s utterly noble in size and towers above the top of the cake tin when taken out of the oven. The sponge tastes creamy and sweet with a light moist texture and soft lush summer berries studded throughout, simply delicious!

Being such an easy bake to achieve, this cake takes no time to create. Shush, this is our little secret, no one will ever guess *wink* *wink*.




Mixed Berry Cake
Adapted from Simon Rimmer of Market Kitchen

Ingredients
250g (9 oz) butter
100ml (3½ fl oz) double cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs
275g (10 oz) caster sugar
550g (1lb 4 oz) plan flour
Finley grated zest of 1 lemon
2 tsp baking powder
500g (1lb 2oz) frozen mixed summer berries
Icing sugar to decorate

You will need a 20cm (8 in) round springform tin, greased and lined with baking parchment or greaseproof paper.

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.

In a saucepan over a low heat, melt the butter, cream and vanilla extract, and then leave aside to cool. Beat the eggs and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the cooled butter and cream mixture and mix through to combine. Sieve the flour and baking powder together over the mixture and fold through, now fold the lemon zest in. Taking all the frozen summer berries gently fold these through trying not to break the fruit up. The mixture is thick so don’t be alarmed. Spoon all the mixture into the prepared cake tin and smooth the top with a spatula or back of a spoon. Bake for approximately 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Sift a little icing sugar over the top of the cake before serving.

Serve in slices as a teatime cake or as a dessert with mixed berry sauce and whipped cream or lashings of custard.

Lastly, take a slice of mixed berry cake and enjoy the wonders of this marvellous cake!

You've put this up at a brilliant time. Just when I was lamenting what to do with all the raspberries I have left over from my Mum and you appear with this cake!! Even better because I've just frozen them all so a mixed berry cake can become a raspberry cake!

I can't think there are too many people who are unhappy to see dessert.
Fruit and cake is definitely "berry" good, as Cynthia says. :)

I rather like the 'raggedy' top - makes it look appealingly rustic and cottagey-style.

Yum - what a super cake.

Indigo said...

As much as I love glamorous cakes, something about this kind is so homely and comforting that I just can't resist. And I love baking with summer fruit, of course. Just needs a cup of tea, now!

Grace said...

i think this is a beautiful cake! sure, it's a wee bit crumbly, but those berries and that texture are infinitely appealing to me. awesome recipe!

n33ma said...

I'd eat it for brkfast,lunch and dinner.

Marta said...

Sometimes the "ugly duckling" cakes are the tastiest!
this look moist and naturally sweet. Delicious!

Kevin said...

That berry cake looks really good!

I made the cake yesterday and served it to guests for lunch today. Everyone said it was very good but I thought it was a bit dry. I had to bake it about 20 minutes longer than the recipe called for to finish baking the middle. However, it was tasty especially served with REAL whipped cream. Thanks for the recipe.

♥Rosie♥ said...

Hi Anonymous, I’m sorry to hear your cake seemed a little dry, I’m not sure why? I wonder if it was down to having to bake it that little bit longer – I found the sponge to be very moist from the frozen fruits and it took 1 hr to bake in my oven. I’m pleased your guests enjoyed a slice with fresh cream :0) Thanks for letting me know, it’s always nice to get feedback :0)

Best wishes Rosie x
