Blackberry Cake recipe
delicious recipe for a Blackberry Cake: Ingredients: For the Cake: 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened 1 cup buttermilk 3 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 cups fresh blackberries For the Frosting: 8 oz cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened 4 cups powdered sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract For Garnish (optional): Fresh blackberries Instructions: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans or line them with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter and granulated sugar together until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then, mix in the vanilla extract. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Gently fold in the fresh blackberries. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans and smooth the tops. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean. Once baked, remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool in the pans for about 10 minutes. Then, remove the cakes from the pans and transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. While the cakes are cooling, prepare the frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract until the frosting is smooth and well combined. Once the cakes are completely cool, place one cake layer on a serving platter or cake stand. Spread a layer of frosting over the top. Place the second cake layer on top of the frosted layer. Frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining frosting. If desired, garnish the cake with fresh blackberries on top.
