Easy Berry Butter Cake

Take advantage of the sweet berries which are in abundance this time of year by making a perfect springtime dessert loaded with sweet, plump blueberries and big red juicy strawberries.

about 5 - 6 large strawberries, cut into quarters
a handful of blueberries
125g butter, softened
90g caster sugar
orange zest 
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 eggs
115g self-raising flour, sifted
30g almond meal
50g orange juice
almond flakes

  • Preheat oven to 170 deg C.  Grease and line the base of a 20cm ring pan.
  • Combine flour and almond meal together in a bowl.  Set aside.
  • Cream butter, sugar and lime zest until light and fluffy.  Add in eggs, one at a time.  Then add in vanilla extract.
  • Fold in flour mixture and orange juice.  Mix well.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan. Place strawberries and blueberries on the batter and scatter almond flakes over.
  • Bake for about 1 hour or until cooked. Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.


  1. It looks very beautiful, Mindy. I love fresh berries and this is a simple yet perfect recipe to use them.

    1. Hi Angie I love fresh berries too and they are quite cheap at this time of year.

  2. Hi Mindy... what is almond meal?

    1. Hi Sorry for the late reply; internet down. Almond meal is ground almond. You can buy ready ground or grind them yourself.

    1. Hi Nigela, sorry for the late reply, internet down. You can replace almond meal with s.r. flour with the same amount.
