This tender cake bakes over sweet berries, creating a juicy, cobblerlike dessert. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if desired.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a 9- by 13-inch baking dish, mix blueberries and raspberries with 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Spread level.

Step 2

In a bowl, whisk eggs, olive oil, orange peel, vanilla, and remaining 1 cup granulated sugar. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt until just combined. Pour batter evenly over berry mixture and gently spread to cover berries.

Step 3

Bake cake in a 350° regular or convection oven until top springs back slightly when gently pressed in the center, 28 to 35 minutes. Let cool at least 10 minutes; serve warm or cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving, and scoop portions onto plates.

Fantastic using peaches instead of berries! Wrong time of year for fresh picked berries so I used what was available at our farmer's market this week. I will use this for any type of fresh fruit.

Made the recipe for Father's day and got rave reviews. Used 4 cups mixed blackberries, raspberies and blueberries. Easy and delicious.
