Blackberry Whipped Cream

  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup sugar

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • butter a 9” round cake pan.

  • Spoon into prepared pan, smoothing the top.
  • Sprinkle the top of the cake with a light dusting of cornmeal
  • Bake until cake is browned, 35-40 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool in pan for
  • minutes.
  • Invert cake onto plate to remove the pan and then invert again and return to rack to cool completely.

Blackberry Whipped Cream

  • In a bowl add the cream,sugar and vanilla and whip at medium speed until almost you have soft peaks.
  • add the blackberries and continue to whip until they are fully incorporated
  • Place whipped cream in a pastry bag with tip and decorate the top of the cake with a ring of whipped cream, or just served the cake with a dollop of the blackberry whipped cream.
  • Before serving dust inside the whipped cream with 10x sugar


*I increased the Blackberries to 2 cups because of their size compared to the blueberries, you could probably add another ½ cup to the mix to get more blackberries in every slice.
