Blackberries are some of my absolute favorites – right up there with raspberries – I love their texture and sweetness and their association with summer. The blackberries paired with a hint of lemon makes this cake really “summer-y.”
I’ve recently become a little obsessed with this food blog – North Dixie Kitchen. Her savory creations that are just as pretty as they are delicious, I’m sure, actually inspire me to whip out the pots and pans and start cooking. And that’s exactly what I did on Sunday since David had to work ALL day. Literally 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. – isn’t funny how when we were in 5th grade we “hated” the idea of a 9-5? Oh if only we knew. 9-5 is the REAL American dream.
Anyway, if you have any berries left over from the 4th this would be a great way to use them. Or if you just want a really pretty summer-y dessert. Have a great start to your week and thanks for reading.
