Berry Sour Cream Cake


I actually stumbled upon this recipe when i was browsing thru the allrecipes.com website and  got attracted by the photo shown there, a cake with raspberries and blueberries and with some glaze. I had some blueberries and sour cream in my fridge and i thought, i might as well try bakingthis cake and bought some raspberries. Not a difficult cake to make but i find that the cake is a little dense but moist and nice flavour too. I did not make the glaze.Try this if you love berries. I made half of the recipe below and baked into a 6"x6" square tin.



Ingredients:
225gm butter, softened
250gm sugar
2 eggs
230gm sour cream
5ml vanilla extract
250gm all purpose flour
5gm baking powder
2gm baking soda
245gm fresh raspberries
145gm fresh blueberries

Glaze:
240gm icing sugar
55gm butter,melted
3ml vanilla extract
30ml milk

Method:
1.In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.Add the eggs, sour cream , vanilla and mix well.
2.Combine the flour, baking powder,baking soda, gradually add to the creamed mixture.
3.Spread into a greased 13"x9"x2" baking tin and sprinkle with raspberries and blueberries.
4.Bake at 325F for 40-45mins or until toothpick inserted near centre comes out clean. ( i baked mine at 145C)

For glaze:
1.In a mixing bowl, beat the icing sugar, butter, vanilla and enough milk to drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm cake. Cool cake before cutting.
