My baking experiment #23 – very berry breakfast cake

I’ve decided to alternate between healthy & decadent desserts, so it won’t be too bad for my health.
But the healthy dessert still has to taste good. This time, i’m gonna bake a breakfast cake:
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen berries
  • ½ cup buttermilk

*** To make homemade buttermilk, place 1/2 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice in a liquid measuring cup. Fill cup with milk until it reaches the 1/2 cup line. Let stand for five minutes.

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
  3. Toss the berries with ¼ cup of flour.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining flour, baking powder and salt.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the batter a little at a time, alternating with the buttermilk.
  6. Fold in the berries.
  7. Spread batter into pan. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Check with a toothpick for doneness.
  8. Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving.

The cake was yummy! Not too sweet, full of berry flavor, perfect for breakfast with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk. Also kinda healthy with the berries in it. I like it 🙂
