Blackberry Lavender Cake

This Blackberry Lavender Cake is so beautiful, it is the perfect centerpiece and one of my favorite dessert recipes for your next party or holiday.

Made with a sour cream base cake and fresh lavender and blackberry preserves. It tastes delicious with some Blackberry Iced Tea.

Try this blackberry lavender bundt cake at your next family breakfast or party.

I have been eyeing these blackberries in the store for weeks now and today I picked them up. I thought I needed to make something with them because they are so beautiful and they need to be photographed.

What makes this bundt cake special?

I love Bundt cakes because they are so easy and they don’t have to take all day to bake and frost. Plus you can fill the middle with fruit and it looks so scrumptious. For this cake, I used this 12 cup bundt pan.

I decided to add a little lavender that I had bought as I was making this batter, just because it goes with the color and it makes it a little more unique, but you can decide if you want to add it or not.

I have a spice grinder so I did take a teaspoon and ground up the lavender a little bit. You can also try it in Lavender Lemonade and Lavender Cheesecake recipes.

I served this after dinner this weekend and it was delicious.

  1. Hi there! Visiting from Skip the Housework. I don’t think I’ve had lavender in any baked goods besides macarons. This looks so delicious! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. Pinned!

  2. How funny that I saw this on Foodie Friends Friday today. My coworker and I were talking about lavender in baked goods just today. I have only ever had it in shortbread cookies and she was thinking of trying a lemon cupcake that had lavender in the icing. We will definitely have to play around with it some more! This looks great!
