Sophie’s speedy mixed berry cake!

A fabulously easy to make fruit cake
A fabulously easy to make fruit cake
I had leftover ripe raspberries & blackberries in my fridge. I wanted to make a quick cake from them. So, I made this! Easy does it here! 🙂
Recipe: For 1 cake, for about 13 slices


60 gr wholemeal spelt flour

60 gr normal flour

120 gr of salted butter

135 gr of raw, Demerara sugar

2 teaspoons of baking powder

220 gr of fresh mixed berries ( I used a mix from raspberries & black berries )

1 large organic egg, beaten


1. Take a cooking pot & put butter & sugar in it. Let it melt on medium heat. Stir often. Do not let the butter & sugar burn! Set aside to cool down.

2. Preheat the oven to 175°C. ( 347 F) for about 10 minutes.

3. Take your fitting bowl from your Kenwood & place K-paddle in. Add 2 types of flours & baking powder. Mix.

4. When butter & sugar mixture has cooled down, add that to the bowl. Mix well. Add beaten egg. Mix well.

5. Now, add the fruit. Mix so that all the fruit is mashed into the cake dough. It will turn purple in colour.

6. Pour the dough into a silicon cake tin. When you use silicon materials, you don’t have to grease the tins. If you don’t have those, you will have to grease the baking tin.

7. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. If you use only white flour, you will need only 20 minutes in the oven.

8. When you think your cake is ready, test with a pin. Take it out of the oven & leave the cake for about 5 to 10 minutes in the silicon baking tin. This will also give a shine to your cake! Place on a wire rack. After 5 minutes, carefully take the cake out & place on a wire rack to cool down completely. Stay tuned, Subscribe by email through the link below to get my new cool newsletters aka posts! Join 1,800 email Subscribers!

Hello! My name is Sophie & I love to cook & bake mostly healthily but with a twist! There is a bit of gardening & travelling in here too! Enjoy! :)

  1. ooooo! That looks like bread pudding 🙂 So moist and also love the colors. What a fun cake. (and anything with “speedy” in the title gets bonus points)

  2. Beautiful colours! And I love fresh fruit in cakes too, so moist and flavourful 🙂

    It looks very tasty and nutritious. Thanks a lot!

  5. What a great idea. I love the look of your cake as the berries have made it such a pretty colour. It must have a beautiful flavour xx

  6. Finally I have time to catch up with you Sophie…and it looks like you’ve been busy!! This cake looks sooo yummy, and here in New Zealand, berries are all in in season. I would love to try some of their more unusual berries in this super spelt cake!
