Blackberry Orange Cake

This lovely cake is just what you need to bring a ray of sunshine to a snowy February. Maybe it's not snowy where you live. This cake will still brighten up your February.

I love blackberries. And they've been plentiful this year, shipped in from warmer climes to the frozen tundra. I so appreciate great produce in the dead of winter.

This cake is simple and satisfying. It's beautiful and delicious, two of my requirements for great desserts.
