Blackberry Apple Cake

Now that Fall is truly upon us, my family's apple tree has been delivering gorgeous fruit! I love using produce from my own garden or from local farmers markets, so the fact that I can go and grab an apple directly from my yard brings me great satisfaction. My wonderful man and I also happened to go blackberry picking a few weeks ago and gathered enough to make multiple delicious treats.  I froze most of them so I can bring them out later when they're no longer in season.  Today I wanted to share a tasty cake that we made from my apples and blackberries.  I found a wonderful recipe on Karina's blog that caught my eye and I just had to give it a try.  The following recipe has a few alterations, but feel free to follow her original recipe that incorporates cranberries.  I may use that version when Thanksgiving rolls around.  I ate this yummy cake in the morning and would love to bring it to a brunch sometime! It also tasted delicious in the evening with my favorite coconut milk ice cream.  Give it a try and let me know when you prefer to enjoy it! I hope you are enjoying this year's Fall as much as I am!

{Blackberry Apple Cake}

1 Cup Sorguhum Flour
1/2 Cup Buckwheat Flour
1/4 Cup Potato Starch
1 tsp Xanthan Gum
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground Cloves
1 Cup Sucant

1 TBSP Egg-Replacer
1/4 Cup warm Water
1/2 Cup Grapeseed Oil
1/2 Cup unsweetened Applesauce
1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla Almond Milk
1/4 teaspoon Rice Vinegar
2 TBSP raw organic Agave
1 tsp Bourbon Vanilla

2 Cups Chopped Apples
3/4 Cup frozen Blackberries

To begin preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9 inch round pan.  Then mix all the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl and all the wet in a larger bowl.  Stir well and then combine the two in the larger bowl.  Fold in the Apples and then pour batter into pan.  Tuck in the Blackberries throughout the batter.  Drizzle Honey or Agave over the batter in a criss-cross fashion.  Place in warmed oven and bake for 45-60 minutes. Test it by sticking a small knife in the center.  If it comes out clean, without lingering batter, then it is ready! Pull out and eat warm. This cake is a delicious breakfast treat or yummy dessert when served a la mode!

this is a beautiful cake...and that it is made with such fresh ingredients makes it all the better. we have an apple tree, but unfortunately a late spring frost hit is, and we only ended up with 3 apples...but they were delicious!

Thank you! Ah I love fresh homegrown fruit :). SIlly frost! I'm glad you at least got a few tasty apples from it. Thanks for stopping by!

Blackberries and Apples sounds great. I only used blackberries once. They must have been out of season because they were very expensive and I just never went back for more. This recipe is convincing me that I should give them a try.

Thanks for linking this to My Meatless Mondays.
