Jen's Berry Berry Good Cake

During the summer, when berries are plentiful, this is a wonderful and simple recipe that highlights the fruit. It tastes like there's a bite of jam in every bite. Ready in a jiffy and unlike any other cake I've had. Leftovers are fabulous with coffee for breakfast (just eat before the kids wake up).



  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • pinch salt
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups chopped strawberries or blueberries


  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cream or milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, grease and flour 13x9 inch cake

Beat butter until creamy; add sugar gradually and beat until light and fluffy. Blend in Egg then set aside. Combine milk and vanilla, set aside. Combine dry ingredients, set to side.

Beginning with milk/vanilla mixture, alternately add wet and dry ingredients to the butter mixture, until well blended.

Spread batter in prepared pan, evenly spread fruit over top. Bake in a preheated oven 30-40 minutes. Cool 5 minutes and then glaze with mixed glaze ingredients. I find I usually have some glaze leftover.

This sounds so good and so easy. Will definitely try it as soon as I find good ripe strawberries.

Thanks for sharing.
