Marionberry – Almond Cake





I was really looking forward to bake this  berrilicious  cake  for our 18th bake for The Home Baker event this month selected by  Janis from The Kitchen Is My Shrink .  What an awesome pick as I was really glad that I’ve baked the full recipe for this event  organized by   Joyce  from Kitchen Flavours .  We’re to bake every single recipe from Lou Shibert Pappas cookbook – Coffee Cakes  & to be honest I’ve never baked so many recipes from one cookbook before . And I supposed that I’m not the only one .  LOL  I love berry cakes & tarts especially when in season . Making the most of the  fresh seasonal berries is always the best for taste & value too .  This recipe calls for hazelnut meal but I was a bit lazy to drive to the store so I just used almond meal from my pantry .  LOL  I’ve baked the full recipe & I’ve added blackberries, blueberries with few raspberries for the topping  .  It might not look that appealing but believe me that this is a wonderful summery coffee cake .  I just love this rich nutty flovor cake with juicy berry topping  that goes well with a cup of mocha .  I’m definitely baking this cake again , when I harvest some blueberry & raspberry from my garden , this summer .  For the full recipe for this delicious cake please hop over to  Janis  & for more yummilicious bakes from all the members of THB  HERE .

  3. Hi Kit,
    I never know that coffee cake can be so tasty until I follow yours and Joyce's blog. I learn how to appreciate nutty and fruity added coffee cakes. They does look plain compare to those frosted and decorated cakes but they are just beautiful as it is.

    Your Marionberry-almond cake really look inviting!
    It is so good to have it with a cuppa of coffee.

    Ohhh! I'm falling in love with the tulips in your garden..lol

  10. Hi Kit,
    I'm so jealous of all your berries! This is indeed a keeper recipe. Don't you love it, that you are using your cookbook to the max? Hahaha! With delicious results too!
    Your cake looks wonderful. Can I come over when it is time for you to harvest your berries? I'll bring a basket to ta-pau back home!! And at the same time, I'll grab some of those gorgeous tulips too! :)
    Have a great week!

  15. What a lovely cake! Btw Kit, I wanted to ask on something else. How do you know which flowers are edible and which are not? I usually buy a pack from the supermarket because I am not sure which ones are edible from the garden. Thanks in advance for your reply.

    1. Thanks Yen. I grow my own edible flowers with organic seeds & I've book about edible flowers too . I've planted the most common edible flowers such as nasturtium(my favourite), borage, dandelion, pansy, chives , courgette flowers . You can used the pack of edible flowers at the supermarket as reference & get the seeds. Try to google for their Latin names , just in case getting the right one. But the ones that I've grown are the most common edible flowers that I'm sure you can easily plant them in Malaysia. Good luck & do let me know ya. BTW which flower is your favourite ? I love them in my salad especially nasturtium that has radish taste! ;)

  19. Hi Kit!
    Oh what a lovely looking cake. I kinda like that you used almond meal rather than the hazelnut. I too am more apt to have it in the pantry. I can only imagine what berries you will be tossing in the next time you bake it, lol...

    Thank you so much for sharing...I adore your Tulips too!!!

    P.S. If you get a chance, watch for a new post I will be adding to my blog within the next couple of days. Thanks so much, Louise

  22. Hi Kit, wow.... that's a very scrumptious cake. Look really inviting and best to go with hot coffee. As usual love your presentation and gorgeous flower. I like your crochet table cloth, very pretty.
