Vanilla Blackberry Cake

Cindy Ferguson


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!
