baked goods made with blackberries...

prima Jul 30, 2012 10:07 AM

Baking the blackberry upside-down cake on the Serious Eats site today. http://mobile.seriouseats.com/recipes...

Anyone have any suggestions for another blackberry cake/loaf/muffin/baked goods recipe, for my next picking of blackberries?

      David Lebovitz has a recipe for blackberry financiers in, Ready For Dessert.

        I like an oatmeal crisp, with quite a bit of spice, including cloves, in the topping.. .somewhat inspired by recipes for blackberry jam spice cake that I've seen but never tried (someday!).
        And yes, if you have a smaller amount of perfect blackberries, French-style custard tarts are a great way to show them off!

            I meant to ask where you are getting the berries?

              I've been growing my own. I've got 4 blackberry bushes. The weird weather conditions worked for them- they're producing the most berries they've ever produced this year.

                Luck you - I have a small raspberry patch but a "good year" means 10-20 small berries a day for a couple of weeks - fun for the kids to eat but certainly not enough for baking :)

          My favorite is cobbler:

            Sub blackberries in place of blueberries in Joy of Cooking's buttermilk muffins, or for the raspberries called for here: http://www.gourmet.com/recipes/2000s/2009/06/raspberry-buttermilk-cake

            I've used blackberries to top these tartlets--subbing lemon curd/pastry cream for the cream cheese filling: http://www.joyofbaking.com/Shortbread...
