One-Bowl Blackberry Cake

One-Bowl Blackberry Cake


*1 cup all-purpose flour

*1/2 tsp. baking powder

*1/2 tsp. baking soda

*1/4 tsp. salt

*2/3 cup sugar (plus 1 1/2 Tbsp. extra for top)

*1/2 stick (4 Tbsp.) butter, melted

*1 large egg

*1/2 cup milk (I use 2%)

*1 tsp. almond extract

*1 tsp. lemon juice

*1 cup fresh blackberries 


*Preheat oven to 400*F. Butter and flour a 9-inch cake pan (I used a 10-inch tart pan, which worked nice, too). 

*In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. 

*Add the melted butter, egg, milk, almond extract, and lemon juice to the bowl and stir (by hand) until ingredients are well-combined and batter is smooth.

*Pour batter into the cake pan. Top with the blackberries and sprinkle the top of the cake with 1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar. 

*Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a wooden pick comes out clean when inserted into the center. (For the 10-inch tart pan, bake 18-20 minutes.) Cool on wire rack.
