Make Use Of The Berry Bounty With This Cake!

Last night I cooked this cake,a variation on my favourite traybake recipe, easy to make and feeds many!

I added cocoa this time, which much to my 5 year old's amusement covered the kitchen in a plume of brown 'smoke' when I spooned it into the mixer! I had accidentally left it on high speed! My daughter and I pressed stoned cherries and blackberries from the garden into the firm batter and enjoyed it warm for puds. 

I love this time of year, kids relaxed after a few weeks off school, and the garden damp but yielding! With blackberries tumbling over the fence, beans growing inches in a day, and courgettes that bolt to marrows if you miss your daily visit to the veg patch! Well worth a dash out in the rain for ingredients for supper and pud!


I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as my 'little bear' did! Of and of course I brought some in for the Blake & Bull boys this morning!

Katy Boys

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
