I don’t have a recipe for the exact cake you’re looking for. I do however have a great plain recipe for a spice cake that might work well as a base. Fold in blackberries at the end and top with the icing once it’s baked.
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 cup milk
- 3 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup softened butter
- 2 cups brown sugar
- Preheat your oven to 350F and grease a 9×13 inch pan.
- Get out a large bowl and pour in all dry ingredients (except the brown sugar). Whisk them together well.
- Mix the milk, eggs and vanilla extract in a small bowl.
- Cut the butter into small chunks and add them to the flour mixture. Use a fork or your electric mixer to incorporate it into the flour mixture.
- Add a little of the milk mixture at a time and beat until smooth. Add the sugar and stir just until it is combined. Pour batter into cake pan.
- Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean.
Another good starting point would be this gingerbread cake.
