  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup

  3. In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Mix in the buttermilk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  6. Gently fold in the dry ingredients until just incorporated.
  7. Gently fold in the fresh blackberries.
  8. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  9. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  10. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Blackberry Icing

To enhance the flavors even further, we recommend topping the Maple Blackberry Snacking Cake with our luscious blackberry icing.

Ingredients for Blackberry Icing

  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Instructions for Blackberry Icing

  1. In a blender or food processor, puree the blackberries until smooth.
  2. Pass the blackberry puree through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any seeds.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the blackberry puree, lemon juice, and powdered sugar.
  4. Whisk until the icing is smooth and creamy.

Assembling the Cake

Once the cake has cooled, generously spread the blackberry icing over the top, allowing it to cascade down the sides. Garnish with fresh blackberries for an extra touch of elegance.
