-Lemon Blackberry Cake-
I am so happy to introduce you to this yummy cake! Isn’t it pretty? I made it because I was craving lemon pound cake something awful! Came up with this and had to add a topping. That’s where the blackberries came into play and I am sooo happy that it worked so well!
This would be such a beautiful cake for a shower or event! Especially for those who want to keep to Trim Healthy Mama or Low Carb!
It’s such a summery cake! Lemon just says SUMMER!
My husband said that the cake tastes like the Lemon Loaf Pound Cake from Starbucks… and we all know that that one is FULL of sugar. No pounds are coming of there but with this Lemon Blackberry Cake you can have your cake and eat it too!
For my Trim Healthy Mama friends this is an S meal! I use the THM Baking Blend as the main “flour” with almond flour in it too. If you do not have the baking blend you can try making your own. Here is a recipe that many of my friend’s have tried and love: Nili’s Baking Mix
I also use the THM Gentle Sweet because it’s my favorite. Look for the notes on using other sweetener.
