Vanilla Blackberry Cake

Cindy Ferguson Recipe

By Cindy Ferguson Cindy5522

As I was searching for a new and delicious blackberry recipe, I just wasn't satisfied with those that I found. So, instead I took ideas from here and there and made my own. It was a huge hit with my husband who loves blackberries! This certainly isn't a calorie friendly cake, but it is so worth the calories. Enjoy!

    I saved this recipe, looks so good. When I was little, dad would go berry picking and mom had a time trying to get us girls to eat them, so she would whip up a white cake mix for cupcakes and drop a few berries in each one. I still remember the sour berries surrounded by the sweet cake. alot of memories there.
