The Blackberry Cake
For this cake, I made 1 1/2 portions of my ‘Simple Vanilla Cake’ recipe. I have the recipe proportions down below in the ingredient list! I added loads of fresh lime zest straight into the cake batter to add extra lime flavor. And, I also added some whole berries to the batter for more berry flavor! You can use frozen berries for the frosting and cake layers if you don’t have fresh berries.
The Lime Curd Filling
For the filling, I made some home-made lime curd. If you’ve never tried making your own citrus curd at home, you’re in for a treat! It’s super silky and oh-so-good! For best results, use freshly squeezed lime juice and strain it of pulp and seeds before using. Serve the extra curd along with the cake and keep any leftovers in the fridge. It’s also great on toast for breakfast!
The Blackberry Frosting
This berry whipped cream frosting is everything! It’s very light, fluffy and fruity and it holds its shape so it’s great for cake decorating! For this blackberry cake, I used blackberry sauce instead of the raspberry sauce I used in the original video recipe.
