Wow looks delicious! Shame I'm detoxing for the next few weeks, but my waisline will thank me.

Laura - That cake looks delicious. I recently baked a raspberry crumble cake and it was heavenly! Btw, crumble topping works great with berry cakes (you might want to give it a try next time).

Looks and sounds absolutely yummy. Blackberries and cinnamon.... We have a neighbor who has huge blackberry bushes, and lets us pick to our hearts' content. Now I know what to do with our pickings!

Laura

Sarah: I could try to sell you the antioxidant qualities of blackberries but I guess the sugar might cancel some of it out!

Cenk: Thanks for the tip, I was being a lazy baker just using the sugar, will definitely try the crumble next time. That lavender creme brulee looks amazing by the way!

Lydia: I'm becoming more and more envious of the neighbours you have!

Sarah

That looks yummy. I went up to Cratloe last night with the boyfriend and the dog looking for blackberries but I think we were too late. They were all dried up and the ones that weren't, were very watery and many had larvae in them!!! Very disapointing!!!

"should serve 8"..ahahah! That's the way I feel when I post a recipe ad realize I have scarfed down half of it already! I love this kind of cake and wish berries would be more affordable here. But I guess I can get creative whith the tropical fruits we get! Beautiful cake.

Deborah

What a gorgeous cake! I wish I had some berries growing in my backyard...

Perfect cappucino dunking cake!! There's 3 of us here so that makes 5:)

It tasted wonderful! The hint of cinnamon combined with the seasonal blackberry really brought out the Autumnal taste. Just need a mug of hot apple cider and the season will be truly here!

Laura,
Sigh...this makes me feel all cozy and autumn-y. I love your descriptions, I can just imagine myself there. Now all I need is a slice of that cake...

I wish I had some blackberries!
I just made a yogurt cake yesterday but used orange and vanilla.

I love berries, and keep using them in desserts and drinks! this sounds like a nice thing to try, excpet that I might omit the cinnamon:)

Hi Laura

Was wondering could you use other fruits for this cake - like blueberries?? This looks deliciou.

Laura

Hi Grainne,

You can use any berry you choose for this really, I usually make it with raspberries replacing the cinnamon with the finely grated zest of a lemon and I think I saw a blueberry version on Chocolate & Zucchini where the original recipe comes from.

As to buying blackberries, I did see some in Dunnes a few weeks ago I'm not sure if they're still stocking them.

Grainne

Hi Laura
Made this last night too - didnt manage to have it for desert. Used a mix of berries - rasberries, strawberries blackberries - cooked it for the required time. How many eggs were you supposed to put into it? I put in two and had it with my coffee this morning. Hmmmmm it tasted good except maybe a little too wet in the middle, I presume this is because of the fruit.

Laura

Oh help! Slap on the wrist for me, the recipe calls for 3 eggs! It is quite a moist cake, I often find it needs to be cooked a little longer than an hour though before the cake tester comes out clean from the centre of the cake.

Grainne

three eggs!!! glad I put two then cause it would have super moist.
