Blackberry Blueberry Sour Cream Cake....and, Pay It Forward Winners



On my cruise through all of the blogs that I follow, I saw the Raspberry Sour Cream Cake that was posted at Thibeault's Table. It looked moist and full of flavor and I was anxious to see if I could get the same results. I wasn't disappointed.

It was easy to make and absolutely delicious! It wasn't overly sweet so I think it would be a good breakfast cake.


Not having any raspberries on hand, I used blackberries and blueberries.

I baked the cake in the convection oven and checked the cake in 45 minutes. I extended the baking time to one hour.


It is a good thing that the frosting is drizzled over the cake while it is still warm! It didn't take me long to clean up everything and help myself to a warm, moist, and tasty piece of Blackberry Blueberry Sour Cream Cake!


This was a yummy treat. The neighbors benefited from my baking spree, again. It is fun to cook and share with others.

Blackberry Blueberry Sour Cream Cake
(Adaptation by Thibeault's Table; original recipe at Sarea.vox.com)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

9 inch Springform pan

Butter the bottom and sides. Line the bottom with parchment paper and butter the parchment.

2 eggs
1 cup of sour cream
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1 or 2 tsp vanilla extract, to taste.
1 pint of fresh raspberries, blackberries and/or blueberries

Mix sour cream, eggs, sugar, vanilla, melted butter, and oil together.

Combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda,

Mix the flour mixture into the sour cream mixture.

Pour half the batter into the prepared pan. (You may need to smooth it out over the bottom.)

Sprinkle with half of the berries. Spoon the remaining batter over the berries. Sprinkle the remaining berries over the top.

Bake for approximately 45-60 minutes. Test cake for doneness with a tester or a toothpick.

Let rest for 10 minutes on a cake rack. Turn cake out of pan, peel off parchment and turn cake up right.

Cream Cheese Frosting

1/2 cup (4 oz) cream cheese
1 to 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Beat together and drizzle over cake while it is still warm.

PRINTABLE RECIPE

I used a pastry bag to drizzle the frosting. It worked like a dream!

  6. Awwwwwww wow! Thanks! I love the Pay it Forward concept. Hope I can do you proud! Your Blackberry cake looks delish. I still have blackberries in my freezer from last year and it won't be long before this years crop will be ripe for the picking. I have loads of them on the other side of my fence so always looking for a great recipe. Ann has some good ones, so you probably couldn't go wrong using one from her site.
