Blackberry Apple Pocket Cake

Hi all!

I hope your summer has been relaxing 🙂 Mine, has suddenly become nothing of the sort, as I balance my research proposal with my first clinical rotation. I started the week before last, and so far it’s been absolutely amazing. Everything I had hoped residency would be!

For the first few days on the floor, I didn’t yet have my new lab coat. When I asked about the order status, I said I needed my snack pockets back. I think she thought I was kidding, but, you guys know I don’t kid about snacks. Snacks don’t fit well in your binder.

I did successfully survive on Nature Valley bars last week, but after picking up some Jersey Mac apples from Gagetown, and lucking into some fresh wild blackberries at the market yesterday, I thought I could whip something up a little more homemade for this week, and still aim for lab coat pocket size!

1.5 c flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1.5 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/2 c butter, melted

3/4 c brown sugar

1 egg

1/2 c milk

1 tsp vanilla

3 small baking apples, sliced

1 cup blackberries

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients with a whisk.

In a small bowl, mix together melted butter, brown sugar, egg, milk and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and combine.

In a round cake pan, lined with parchment paper, add half the batter. Layer some apple slices into this half, and top with some blackberries.

Add the rest of the batter, and top with the apple slices and blackberries.

  1. Looks delish Sarah. I would have cut the apples into thinner slices though. Just saying! I guess it was nice to have Hilda pamper you for a few days. Take care.
