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!
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.
