Made with Love {Berry Buttermilk Cake}

Sometimes when I don't want to clean, I bake.  So I decided to try this recipe from my favorite food blogger.

I had a slight complication...

When you are roasting strawberries in the oven, don't take a shower.

They will burn.

So, my roasted strawberry buttermilk cake turned into this.

I didn't have enough strawberries, so I decided to add some blueberries.  Any berry - or peaches - or pears would work just fine, I'm sure.

Nothing says nap time like a warm piece of cake and a cold glass of milk.

Berry Buttermilk Cake
adapted from Joy the Baker because I took a shower

8 oz of fresh berries
2 1/2 cups flour {I used half all-purpose and half whole wheat flour}
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp flaxseed meal
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups buttermilk {I always make my own - add milk to 1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice to make your 1 1/2 cups.  Let stand for 5 minutes}
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
sugar for sprinkling {I used 2 Tbsp}

whipped cream
I think a strawberry sauce would be delicious too.

Spray your pan.  I used an 11-in. tart pan.

If you're making your own buttermilk, make that first.

Hull and cut strawberries in half.  Set aside with any other fruit you may be using.

Melt the butter.  Set aside.

Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and flaxseed.  Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, butter and eggs.  Pour over flour mixture.  Add half of your berries.  Mix until combined.

Pour into pan.  Arrange the rest of the berries on top.  Sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees.

  4. Oh this cake looks delicious! I love baking with buttermilk (and also make my own using that trick!), it adds so much to the batter! And like you, I bake when I'm supposed to be doing something else (like cleaning!)... baking is just so much more enjoyable!

  5. This looks great! My girls and I love to bake, this will have to go on our list of must haves.
