Bake Blackberry Cake
Edited by Rose B, Lynn, Rebecca M., Eng
In the United States, blackberries are in season during the months of June and July. Although blackberries are available all year round at supermarkets, it is still best to have them fresh. Blackberry fruit is not a berry under botanical terminologies, rather, they are aggregate fruits, or a cluster of fruits. Aside from making them into a jam, it is also good to bake cakes using these fresh juicy fruits.
