What, what? Back to normal? Hardly. I did bake quite a bit while in Michigan and the time right before Michigan, so I have a stock pile of recipes to share with you. A bit of a backlog if you will. Last night I chose to edit photos instead of finishing my essay for grad school, wise choice! Photos for five different recipes are complete. I've made the choice to continue blogging despite my overwhelming schedule with grad school and work because I like it and I need to do something besides go out and drink to release my steam. Plus it's nice to have an excuse to bake, buy expensive ingredients, and use my creativity.
This berry cake is a must make with the last of the season's fresh berries! It is easy, moist, tender, and delicious. The cake is so soft and all the berries are juicy and fresh. Make this cake this weekend, trust me!
