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
