Stir It Up - Blackberry Breakfast Cake; Southern Carmel Cake; Carmel Icing

Blackberry Breakfast Cake 

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 tablespoon unsalted butter

2/3 cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 1/2 cup blackberries

Whipped cream and more blackberries or a mixture of berries for garnish

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Line a nine-inch cake pan with parchment paper.  Butter both the pan and the parchment paper.   Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside.  (That is the flour, baking powder and soda and salt.)   Beat the butter and 2/3 cup sugar together, when fluffy add the egg and vanilla and mix well.  Add the dry ingredients and buttermilk, alternating a little of each until incorporated.   When the batter is just blended, pour into prepared pan and spread evenly.  Sprinkle the washed and dried blackberries over the top and press them into the batter a little.  Sprinkle the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoon of sugar over all and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.  Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, than invert on a serving dish and remove the parchment paper.  Carefully invert again so that the berries are visible.  Cool and serve with sweetened whipped cream and fresh berries.  

 

Southern Carmel Cake 

1 cup butter

2 cups sugar

4 eggs

3 cup self-rising flour

1 cup buttermilk

2 teaspoons vanilla 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and lightly flour 3 nine- inch cake pans.  You may line them with parchment paper.  If you do be sure to grease the parchment paper after you line the pans.   Cream the butter until fluffy them add the sugar and cream again.  Add the eggs, one at a time, creaming after each addition.  Add the flour and buttermilk, alternating a little of each.  Add the vanilla and just mix until incorporated.  Do not over work the batter.  Divide among the prepared pans and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until set.  Turn out of pans to cool completely before frosting.

 

Carmel Icing 

4 cup sugar

2 cup buttermilk

1 cup Cresco

1 cup butter

2 teaspoon baking soda

Mix all ingredients in a large cast iron skillet or Dutch oven.  Swirl pan as it cooks over medium high heat.  Cook to softball stage.  (When you put a little of the frosting in cold water, a soft ball forms.)  Remove from heat and beat until creamy and ready to spread.  Put some frosting between each layer, stack and spread the rest over all.
