Every berry season, I go all in on fresh berries because it’s impossible not too, right? It’s the time to devour fresh berries by the pint or mix them into salads, muffins, scones and more.

But don’t forget frozen berries. They are great for more than just smoothies. Sometimes I prefer them in baked treats like cakes, and it’s not just because they are so incredibly convenient!

Cake

Raspberry Buttermilk Cake

Fresh or frozen berries work in this raspberry buttermilk cake. If you like an even balance of cake and fruit, then go frozen because they spread more. Fresh berries hold their shape and result in more cake bites.

Blackberry Lemon Yogurt Cake

This blackberry lemon yogurt cake proves that berries make basic vanilla cake pretty special. Baked in a round cake pan, it’s an easy dessert. Also, Greek yogurt gives it a wonderful, slight tang.

Mixed Berry Kale Salad

With blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, I toss this mixed berry kale salad in balsamic vinaigrette along with sunflower seeds, goat cheese and scallions. Kale is a hearty choice for lettuce with these berries.
