This cake is kind of magical. As it bakes, it develops a golden crust on top and a fruity pudding underneath. It is a mix between a cobbler and a cake with a pudding-like filling…I mean really it is just simply a divinely comforting dessert! Now, you can use ANY fruit you like in this cake. I happened to have some gorgeous blackberries on hand for this cake I photoed, but I have made it with blueberries, raspberries, peaches…whatever you like will most definitely work. You will love how simply this cake comes together and how yummy it is! I personally think this cake goes well with this Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream, but that is for you to decide. I hope you enjoy!
2 cups blackberries *or any other berry, fresh or frozen
1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour blend
