Traci's notes for this recipe:
This original recipe comes from Gold Medal's Best Baking magazine.

With all the beautiful blackberries in season right now, I couldn't wait to try this out. The cake was moist with a nice texture and flavor. I'll make this one again!

can u use fresh peaches?
user Traci Coleman TraciB70 - Aug 20, 2012
Thank you, SK!

Jeannie - This was my first time to make the cake, and it turned out great with blackberries. I would think that you could certainly use fresh peaches if you diced them, maybe? Peaches actually sound like they'd be great in this. If you don't try it, I may do so next weekend! :)
