Blackberry Pound Cake

When I got home on Thursday, I did indeed find the blackberries calling my name like the Mister said. After unpacking, a bowl was located and quickly filled. I told you that I had plans for these first berries...besides jelly, of course. Well, I searched cookbooks for something special and do believe that I have found a recipe worthy of sharing with you my special friends.

This is a recipe adapted from Molly Wizenbergs book,  A Homemade Life.  You may be familiar with her famous blog, 'Orangette'.

I must move along quickly with this post as my sweetie will be coming home for his morning break and I want to get this out to you.(since I said it would be posted on Friday!)

You can find the recipe on Molly's blog and the recipe is titled 'Raspberry-Blueberry Pound Cake'

I obviously used blackberries instead and also put butter and brown sugar in the bottom of the pan before the batter went in, I wanted it like an upside down cake..yum!

When I served it up, I added whipped cream and fresh grated nutmeg which gave it a nice touch.

Here is the pan I used and it worked well, easily holding all of the ingredients...Molly calls for a 9 Cup pan and this was a bit larger.

As you can see I will be busy with much more picking...I love the free bounty from the earth...Thank you Lord!

This was my breakfast this morning.....I couldn't let it go to waste after the photo shoot, now could I?

Must run now.  Wishing you all a happy, sunny Monday.  xo

Will you make some for me when you come down here? I know, I are going to tell me to get out back and pick my own and make the recipe myself....LOL! But it won't taste as good as when Big Sissy makes it...hint hint.

Love Ya1

I had to come for a visit and get this recipe! I love pound cake, so this will be wonderful in deed.

You are blessed to have those blackberries. We have raspberries right now, and they are very plentyful. I have to watch my back when I pick as the bear likes them as well. First one to the bushes gets the berries! :)

The Lord bless you!

This looks DELISH!! Oh, how I miss my blackberries at my other homestead! They are plentiful this year! The fellow who bought my place told me stop by anytime to pick...might have to take him up on this! Your display dish is beautiful! blessings~~~Roxie
