Easy Summer Berry Cake

September 19, 2014


This is a simple, light, not too sweet little cake that can handle any berry you might have on hand. I used blackberries & raspberries, because they were on sale this week. If you use strawberries, you’ll want to halve or quarter them.

You’ll Need

2 eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 stick butter, melted
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
Zest of 1 lemon
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsps baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
12 oz berries

10 inch tart pan, buttered & floured
Rubber spatula


1. Preheat oven to 400.

2. Mix the eggs & sugar on high until light yellow and frothy.

3. Add melted butter, milk, lemon zest, almond extract & vanilla & blend well.

4. Add flour, baking powder & salt, and mix just until blended.

5. Fold berries into the batter with the spatula.

6. Pour batter into prepared tart pan, smoothing top with the spatula.

7. Bake for 30 minutes, until cake is well browned.

8. Cool on the counter, then remove ring of tart pan, and serve.
