On my cruise through all of the blogs that I follow, I saw the Raspberry Sour Cream Cake that was posted at Thibeault's Table. It looked moist and full of flavor and I was anxious to see if I could get the same results. I wasn't disappointed.
It was easy to make and absolutely delicious! It wasn't overly sweet so I think it would be a good breakfast cake.
Not having any raspberries on hand, I used blackberries and blueberries.
I baked the cake in the convection oven and checked the cake in 45 minutes. I extended the baking time to one hour.
It is a good thing that the frosting is drizzled over the cake while it is still warm! It didn't take me long to clean up everything and help myself to a warm, moist, and tasty piece of Blackberry Blueberry Sour Cream Cake!
This was a yummy treat. The neighbors benefited from my baking spree, again. It is fun to cook and share with others.
