I had taken a cake recipe I had discovered and revamped it with this dish. I had extra fruit lying around the house that I had previously diced for another dish and wanted to use it up. This was the perfect dish to do so with. Great for a summer picnic!

Want an easy patriotic dessert? Sweet, fruity, and fresh, you have to give this delightful dessert a try. It would be delicious at any Memorial Day, Fourth of July, or Labor Day barbecue. We chose to pair our cake with buttercream frosting. But, doctor it the way you wish with different fruits and frosting. This got lots of thumbs up in the Test Kitchen.

Ingredients For berry delight cake

  • 1 box
    French vanilla cake mix
  • 12 oz
  • 1 can
    cake frosting, any flavor
  • 1 c
    strawberries, diced
  • 1/2 c

How To Make berry delight cake

  • Greased pans on top of preheating oven.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cake pans. (I used two 8" round pans.)
  • Cakes baking in the oven.
    In a mixer, combine cake mix and 12 oz. of soda. Mix until combined. Pour into cake pans and bake according to directions on the box. (Toothpick should come out clean.)
  • Diced strawberries and blackberries on a plate.
    Dice your strawberries and blackberries while the cake is baking.
  • One cake in a dish and one cake is broken up into chunks on a plate.
    Once cool, place 1 round cake pan on the bottom of a baking dish, whole. Take the 2nd cake and crumble or dice it.
  • Frosting on top of the cake.
    Add a layer of frosting. (I chose chocolate. You could replace frosting with a cool whip/pudding mix as well.)
  • Layer of strawberries and blackberries on top of the frosting.
    Add a layer of diced strawberries & blackberries on top of the frosting.
  • Crumbled cake on top of the fresh fruit.
    Sprinkle part of the crumbled cake over the fruit. Repeat steps 5 & 6. Refrigerate before & after serving.
