Easiest Cake Ever with Strawberries & Blueberries
Its name is "Easiest Cake Ever"
And it lives up to its name. Easy peasy.

Easiest Cake Ever with Strawberries & Blueberries
I've scheduled this post to publish as I'm heading up to BlogHerFood in San Francisco! I'm excited to meet fellow bloggers and the speakers they have lined up sound great.

I haven't been able to bake much lately as I'm finishing up the move. I hope to get all settled next week and start pounding out some stuff. I have a big thing planned for the blog in October/November...stay tuned! :)

I'll post about the conference (and food) when I get back!

Easiest Cake Ever with Strawberries & Blueberries
This cake is so easy to make. Give your KitchenAid a break and pull out a bowl, basic ingredients and a whisk. Any soft fruit will be yummy. I'd like to try it with some fresh peaches next summer!

Mix in a large bowl:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
zest of 1 lemon
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

Pour into cake pan. I used a 8" pan. Top with any soft fruit, I used strawberries & blueberries. Top with a tablespoon of raw sugar.

As a bonus, it is non-dairy too!

I'm always on the lookout for an easy peasy cake I can serve for breakfast! If it has fruit I can serve it for breakfast right?

Dang, this really IS the easiest cake ever. And looks so srumptious. I wish I were going to the BlogHer conference, but sigh, I'll have to hear your recount when you return.

It does sound easy, but it looks so pretty that anyone would think you put a lot of time into it. Very nice.

Easy cakes are good for times like these :) It was wonderful meeting you in SF - sorry we didn't see much of each other after the morning part, but I'm so glad I met you!

Did I miss the oven temp and time to bake?

The Food Librarian said... [Reply to comment]

Michele and everyone else! Oops. 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Until toothpick comes out clean. :)

This cake looks AMAZING!!! I'm putting this in my "Summer" cateogory of saved recipes because this is a GORGEOUS summer dessert! I guess I could try it for fall, too, with some apples? Do you think that would work? Gorgeous!

This does sounds like the easiest cake ever!

Olga said... [Reply to comment]

Looks gorgeous! Too bad summer is pretty much over.

I made a similar dessert with peaches and blueberries.

Bec said... [Reply to comment]

Made it this weekend with super-ripe plums from farmer's market and almond extract instead of vanilla. It turned out great! Thanks!

This looks like a terrific cake! Love the strawberries and blueberries on top. Isn't it nice to make a recipe from time to time that doesn't require the KitchenAid?
