Moist Berry Cake for the Holidays! Very Simple and Delicious recipe!


Baked my Moist Berry Cake for Thanksgiving again since this is my son’s favorite! BTW, Adults Love it as well!! Super Easy, Delicious and Not as many Calories as the other cakes! WIN WIN!!!

I just Love Fruit coffee cakes, Fruit pies, Fruit Muffins, Fruit pancakes… Anything with FRUIT!

The reason being:

#1. It Cuts down on the CALORIES, considerably and you do not need to put as much sugar since your sugar will come from the natural sweetness of the fruit. It fills up the cake instead of extra Flour or Cream.

#2. My Family Loves them! If I will spend the time on baking, I want to make something that we ALL enjoy! This cake doesn’t last long, have made it last night for dessert and had today for breakfast. ALL Gone! (so don’t knock on my door! LOL)

Now, I have two Amazing recipes for Fruit coffee cakes. One, is Airy, Light, Crumbly with Muffin like texture. Recipe and the Video HERE>


And… This One! It is Dense, Very Moist, Fruity with Pancake, Cobbler like texture. You can serve it with an Ice Cream if you’d like (but, why spoil it! 

Give this a Try! You probably have all you need in your Fridge NOW!

You don’t have to use just Berries for this recipe. I have made it with peaches and plums before, it was AMAZING!

This time, I’ve added the fruit for decoration and glazed it.

Fruit Glaze recipe:
– 1/2 Cup Sugar
– 1 Tbsp. Cornstarch
– 1/2 Cup juice (orange juice or any juice. I didn’t have Orange juice and used the Pomegranate juice.)
– 1/4 Cup water
– 2 Tbsp. lemon juice

Directions:
– In the medium pan, combine all of the ingredients.
– Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and let cool.
– Brush the glaze over the fruit. The glaze will keep the fruit fresh.

I don’t bake often, but when I do, I look for simple recipes with fewer as possible calories. It is almost impossible to find recipes with 2 cups of Flour or less, 1 Cup of sugar or less, 1/2 Cup of butter instead of 1 cup, etc.. I’m very picky and read recipes carefully, baking them in my mind first. Then I change the recipes to my own requirements, experimenting until it comes out PERFECT.
 



Enjoy!
