Easy Blackberry cakes made with foraged blackberries. A yummy, frugal bake for the cake tin!

Blackberry Buns
We're lucky to have a bank full of blackberries in our garden and also many more in the field behind us, so when blackberry season hits my freezer gets very full!

These easy blackberry cakes are super quick to make. In fact, you can be eating one just 20 minutes after you decide to make them.

There's something so comforting about these little sponge cakes and a sign that Autumn is well on it's way!

As much as I love summer, I think Autumn has to be my favourite season. Bonfires, quiet beaches, woodland walks, casseroles, baking, apples - love it!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE BLACKBERRY CAKES



  • The blackberry buns can be made with frozen blackberries as well as fresh ones. 
  • Spice them up by adding half a teaspoon of cinnamon to the mixture.
  • You could use other berries in these too - raspberries and blueberries would work really well, or a combination of all three.
  • These little sponge cakes make quick and easy puddings for the kids, if you serve them warm with custard.
  • They also make great after school snacks for hungry tummies.

    FREEZING BLACKBERRIES


    Blackberries are delicate so wash them very gently under tap water.

    Air dry by placing them on a tea towel or cloth. Pat them with kitchen towel to remove as much moisture as possible.

    Line some large baking trays with baking paper then lay out the washed and dried blackberries on them. Open freeze overnight.

    Transfer the frozen blackberries to freezer bags and freeze for up to 1 year.

      BLACKBERRIES - A FREE SUPERFOOD


      Blackberries are packed full of calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamin C.

      In fact, just 1 cup of raw blackberries has 30mg of vitamin C, which is over half your daily recommended intake.

      Blackberries are also full of antioxidants and count towards your 5- a-day.

      Why not get your walking boots on, grab a large container (a walking stick is also handy for the big juicy out of reach blackberries at the top of the hedge) and get picking!

      It's a great free activity to do with children too.
