Around the house . . .
In the Garden . . .
And in the kitchen . . .
1/2 cup butter, cut into chunks
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 large eggs
1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
powder sugar for sprinkling
Butter and flour a 9 inch cake pan with removable rim.
In a mixer bowl combine sugar and butter chunks. Slowly beat to combine and then beat on high speed for about 3 minutes.
Add flour, baking powder, and eggs.
Stir to combine, then beat on high speed until the batter is stiff and well blended, about 2 minutes.
Scrape batter into cake pan and spread smooth.
Scatter berries on top (you can add more than a cup- I did)
and sprinkle a little extra sugar on them.
Bake in center rack of oven at 350 until cake begins to pull away from the pan, about 55 to 60 minutes.
Run a knife around edge of pan rim. Let cool at least 10 minutes. Remove pan rim, dust cake with powder sugar and cut into wedges.
This is SO good still warm from the oven!
Have a lovely weekend and Happy Mother's Day!
