I found this recipe while searching for a light dessert that would use some of the berries that have been filling my refrigerator this week. We had raspberries, blackberries and blueberries, so we each filled our cake with the berries of our choice. My favorite was the blueberry cake; it reminded me a bit of my favorite blueberry pancakes. The cake with blueberries and blackberries was also delicious. The cake that was only raspberries was quite tart. I think the berries just weren’t as sweet as the others. I loved the way most of the berries stayed whole and then burst in your mouth with such a deep flavor.
This is not an overly sweet dessert. It really plays up the flavor in the berries. It took less than 10 minutes to put it together after dinner. It was a fun treat and my boys really thought it was fun. I baked these in heart shaped ramekins and then turned them out onto individual plates.
