This is a delicious way to use some of your summertime blackberry harvest. This is similar to a spice cake with blackberries and is versatile; this cake could either be dessert, if you serve it with some vanilla ice cream, or a coffee cake.
This cake comes together really quickly – simply beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, add eggs, one at a time and beat well after adding each one.
Next, add the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon,
mace and nutmeg
and beat just until combined. Now mix in the vinegar and apple juice.
Fold in the blackberries.
Pour the batter into a greased 8 inch pan
and bake for 35-40 minutes. Let cool in the pan.
You can sprinkle the cake with powdered sugar and garnish with additional blackberries if you like. Or you can just eat it like snack cake, unadorned but completely delicious.
