Easy Blackberry Cake Recipe

I am surprised I actually finished this cake because I almost ate all the batter first. 

This easy blackberry cake recipe is perfect for fall. You can add pecans or walnuts to the recipe if you'd like, but I opted not too. 

This is a 3 layer cake, but one of mine did not turn out, so 2 it is! 



This cake is very moist and it melts in your mouth. If you like blackberries, you will love this cake!
The frosting is very rich, but who doesn't love caramel cream cheese? 

Impress your guests by making this very easy cake this holiday season.

Blackberry Cake with caramel cream cheese frosting

prep time: 20 minscook time: 35 minstotal time: 55 mins

ingredients:

  • CAKE
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 1/4 cups seedless blackberry jam or preserves
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups whole buttermilk
  • 1 cup golden raisins
FROSTING

  • 3 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup jarred caramel topping
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

instructions:

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 3 (9-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray.
Step 2
Prepare the Cake Layers: Whisk together first 7 ingredients in a large bowl; set aside.
Step 3
Place sugar and eggs in bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment; beat on medium speed until thick and smooth, 3 minutes. Change to paddle attachment. Add oil, jam, and vanilla extract; beat until combined, 1 minute.
Step 4
Add half of the flour mixture to jam mixture; beat on low speed until just combined, 20 to 45 seconds. Add buttermilk; beat on low speed until just combined. Add remaining flour mixture; beat on low speed until smooth and combined, about 30 seconds. Fold in raisins; divide evenly among prepared pans.
Step 5
Bake in preheated oven until edges of Cake Layers are just starting to pull from sides of pans and a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes, rotating pans from top to bottom rack halfway through baking. Press gently on top of layers to flatten any doming; cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely, about 1 hour.
Step 6
Prepare the Frosting: Place cream cheese and sugar in bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment; beat on medium-low speed until combined. Add caramel topping; beat until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. With mixer running, slowly pour in cream and add salt. Beat on medium speed until thick and smooth, 3 to 4 minutes. (Mixture will look runny at first but will thicken as the cream is whipped.)
Step 7
Transfer about two-thirds of the Frosting to a piping bag. Place 1 Cake Layer on a serving plate. Pipe Frosting on top of layer, using a circular motion and starting from the outside and gradually moving to the center. Repeat process with remaining layers. Cover sides with remaining Frosting. (Drag the back of a spoon in a side-to-side motion across the Frosting for a textured look.) Garnish cake with
blackberries.
