Blackberry Ripple


It didn't come out real "rippley" because my black berries were fresh but OMG.... it's good. I just winged the recipe so I thought I'd write it down and share while it was still fresh in my memory.

3/4 cup all purpose flour

1 cup sugar

2 tbsp sorgum

1 heaping tsp of ground cinnimon

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup cold butter

1 package (box, whatever) of Butter Pecan cake mix

3 med handfulls of blackberries

In a good sized bowl combine sugar and sorgum. Blend to the consistancy of brown sugar. You may have to work it all in with a fork.

Add flour, cinnamon, and salt to the sugar mixture.

Cut in the cold butter with a pastry blender until crumbly.

Sprinkle half of this mixture on the bottom of a well greased baking dish.

Prepare the cake as directed and pour over sugar mixture.

Top with blackberries.

Sprinkle on remaining sugar mixture and swirl with a knife.

Bake at 350 fo about 45-50m or until a toothpick stuck near the center comes out clean

.Serve warm, would be really yummy with ice cream or cool whip.

Notes: You can substitue the sugar/sorgum mixture with brown sugar and could use frozen berries but do not thaw berries before using.


No matter how many times I have to mention HDMI cables,, I still don't know what they are. I guess if you need them, you'll know! Check out
