I love summer fruit, especially raspberries and blueberries. I used to sneak raspberries from my neighbor’s garden as a kid, and I remember picking blueberries on a family summer vacation in Maine.
Recently, I created this Summer Berry Cake for Peapod featuring fresh raspberries and blueberries in season. This cake is based on a favorite recipe from one of my best friends. It’s a healthier version made with oat flour and coconut oil.
The berries sink into the cake as they bake. I used two 8″ cast iron skillets to bake the cake. Seasoned cast iron skillets are naturally non-stick, and so pretty to serve in.
I served this Raspberry Blueberry Oatmeal Cake with dairy-free coconut milk ice cream for my husband because he’s dairy-free.
You could almost serve this for breakfast since it’s made with whole grain oats and fruit.
The morning I made this Raspberry Blueberry Oatmeal Cake, my husband was actually having a business meeting at our home, so his colleagues were more than happy to sample and devour this cake. It received rave reviews :).
Raspberry Blueberry Oatmeal Cake
- 1 3/4 cups gluten-free rolled or quick cooking oats or substitute 1 1/2 cups gluten-free baking flour
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons organic sugar divided
- 1/2 cup organic extra virgin coconut oil
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place oats in food processor and process until finely ground. Measure out 1 1/2 cups and set aside.
Place sugar and coconut oil in a mixing bowl and beat until well combined. Add 1 1/2 cups ground oats, baking powder, salt and eggs. Mix well. Spread batter in two 8" cast iron skillets.
Sprinkle blueberries and raspberries on top.
Combine remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over fruit, followed by lemon juice and lemon zest.
Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream, if desired
You can use a single well-oiled 10" springform pan or large cast iron skillet instead of two 8" cast iron skillets. Baking time may need to be increased.
