Old Fashioned Blackberry Cake

A friend of mine found this recipe in her mother’s kitchen. The recipe is probably at least 30 years-old. I had never seen a recipe for blackberry cake so am intrigued. If you try this recipe, please let me know how it turns out. I plan to try it over the Summer.

2 cups flour
2 cups Blackberries (cooked & drained)
¾ to 1 cup blackberry juice
1 ½ cups sugar
½ butter (or butter substitute)
3 eggs (or equivalent egg whites)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground allspice
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. soda

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

1) Cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs and beat.

2) Sift together flour and other dry ingredients. Add these to the sugar mixture.

3) Fold in the berries and juice.

4) Bake in an angel food pan at 325 degrees for about 1 ½ hours.

5) Top with whipped cream or your favorite frosting.
