Three cheers for the blackberry! The most summery of berries, this deliciously dark fruit leaves a pretty lavender hue in its wake when used in baking.

Home cook Deneece took full advantage of this tasty berry in her wonderfully moist Blackberry Cake. She creatively incorporates blackberry-flavored wine, pie filling and actual berries in the batter, filling and decorations ensuring a burst of blackberry goodness in every bite!

Blackberry Cake

with Cream Cheese Frosting

1 bx white cake mix

1 bx blackberry fusion jello, (3 oz.)

4 eggs

1 blackberry yogurt, single serving carton

1/2 c oil

1 c blackberry wine (I used Manischewitz)

1 c fresh blackberries

Filling:

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/2 c confectioners sugar

1/2 c blackberry pie filling sweetened whipped cream

1 c fresh blackberries

Topping:

whipped cream frosting

blackberries to decorate

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 9-in round cake pans.

In large bowl mix cake mix and jello. Add eggs and yogurt. Pour in oil and wine.

Mix on low speed until moistened, then on medium speed until blended.

Pour batter into prepared pans, then arrange blackberries on top of batter. (Berries will sink to bottom while baking.)

Bake for 25 to 30 min or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

While cakes cool, blend cream cheese and confectioners sugar together then add pie filling. Fold in whipped cream until well blended.

Invert first layer onto a cake plate – flatside up – and spread cream cheese filling on top. Arrange blackberries on filling. Place second cake on top of first – flat side should be touching cream cheese filling – and push down gently to connect cakes.

Frost with whipped cream frosting and decorate with remaining blackberries.

“This cake has become well-loved by both family and friends!”
