Merry Berry Cake
Serves: 12 — prep time: 25 min — Cook time: 30-35 min
1/2 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
½ cup canola oil* (120ml)
1 1/2 cup sugar 300g
4 eggs room temperature preferred
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour (390g)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup buttermilk room temperature preferred
2 containers of Triple Berry CF
1/4cup of powder sugar
Preheat oven to 350F and prepare two deep 8" round cake pans** by lining the bottoms with parchment paper and lightly greasing the sides. Line the bottom with a fun design of berry mix. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer (or in a large bowl using an electric mixer) cream together the butter, canola oil and sugar until creamy and well-combined.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Stir in vanilla extract.
In a separate, medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
Using a spatula and gently hand-mixing, alternate adding flour mixture and buttermilk to the butter mixture, starting and ending with flour mixture and mixing until just combined after each addition. The batter should be smooth and completely combined, but avoid over-mixing.
Evenly divide batter into your prepared cake pans, and bake on 350F for 30-35 minutes. When the cake is done, the surface should spring back to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the center should come out mostly clean with few moist crumbs (no wet batter).
Allow cakes to cool in their cake pans for 10-15 minutes before inverting onto cooling rack to cool.
Top with powder sugar and more berries! Enjoy!
