This week I made a Berry Buttermilk Cake. I took it over to the kind neighbors (you can read about them here)
The original recipe is from Smitten Kitchen. I changed a few things around and made loaf cakes instead. Mostly because I wanted to taste the cake before I gave it to someone!
Here is the recipe!
2 1/2 cups of flour, plus 2 tablespoons
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup buttermilk (I used a cup cause that's all that was left)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups berries (I used 4 cups, 2 of raspberry and 2 blackberry. Mine were also frozen)
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Grease bundt pan, (I used 3 loaf pans, really could have been 2 since it didn't rise as much as I thought it was going to)
In a bowl mix together 2 1/2 cups of flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Next cream together butter and sugar until super light and fluffy, 3-5 minutes. At a low speed, add eggs one at a time. Beat in vanilla.
Add 1/3 of flour mixture to batter, mixing until combined. Add half the buttermilk. Continue until all flour and buttermilk is combined. Scrape down bowl.
Toss berries with the remaining 2 tablespoons of flour, and gently fold into batter. The berries do get squished a little, but that's ok.
Add cake to pan (or pans). Its very thick, and it was easier to spoon it in. Smooth out top.
Bake for 50-60 minutes. (I thought it would take less time in the loaf pans, but it didn't) Once a toothpick comes out clean it is done.
Let cool for 30 minutes before removing from pan.
The original recipe from Smitten Kitchen also has a lemon glaze, but I found the cake to be delicious without it so I didn't make the glaze. Also I didn't have any lemons or lemon juice.
This cake was DELICIOUS! I can't believe how good it is. Good thing I gave most of it away or else I'd be in trouble! Its hard enough losing the last of the baby weight without yummy cakes around!
