Red White and Blue Cake for the 4th of July dessert. The Holiday is going to get busy. You need this simple recipe for 4th of July dessert
I posted this berry cake on the 4th of July, but I thought I have to re post it because I am still trying to hold on to summer as much as I could.
Friends, I am introducing to you this Red, White and Blue Berry cake.It has very simple ingredient, easy to make and utterly delicious. The side is a bit crunchy from baking it until golden brown. It took me around 40 minutes to bake this cake and the house smelt so good. The combination of strawberry and blueberry was really a good mix – Not too sour and not bland. The batter yielded a subtle sweetness from the sugar.
Overall verdict – A MUST HAVE DESSERT AND THIS IS A TYPE OF DESSERT YOU CAN BE PROUD SHOWING OFF…
