Tuesdays with Dorie: Berry Suprise Cake

This is my very first Tuesdays with Dorie challenge as well as my very first recipe baked from her book, "Baking From My Home to Yours". This recipe was chosen by Mary Ann of Meet Me in the Kitchen blog. This isn't a cake I would normally make. I'm Belgian. I like chocolate. Sure I like berries. Sure I like fresh whipped cream. But put all of that on a rich chocolate cake and then I'm a happy girl. However, my husband isn't a fan of chocolate like I am so he really enjoyed this light cake. I am positive that the cake part of this was a flop. You are to beat the eggs to triple their volume and then fold in the dry ingredients. I'm quite sure I lost a great deal of my volume there. Despite that I think the cake was quite tasty!


**Edit**
My husband has brought to my attention recently that I have ADD. I have a hard time reading things online and my good frind K told me that in the TWD rules you aren't supposed to post the recipe. OOPS. Sorry Dorie.

I love the cake and backdrop of snow. What an amazing idea. My cake didn't rise or "triple in volume" either but yours sure does look tastey
