Quick Summer Berry Cakes


So many of my childhood memories involve stained fingers and full bellies from berry picking out behind our house, and my mom’s dewberry pies.

While I don’t have berry patches available to my kids, I still feel compelled to fill their summer days with fresh berries and delicious desserts.



When we had friends over for spice rubbed steaks  a few weeks ago, these Mini Berry Cakes were the delicious cap to a wonderful evening.

I’ve shared a version of this Pineapple Summer Cake before, however, I’ve come to love individual servings of food for their portability, ease of serving and let’s be honest y’all… their cuteness 🙂




I’m so excited to share this updated recipe with y’all!

It’s quick and easy and the ‘filling’ can be made ahead of time!

These Summer Berry Cakes are so easy that it’s barely a recipe…

Mix… Bake… Top… Serve…

  1. Sounds berry berry perfect! And I’m a big fan of “individually” sized foods too – helps me keep potions under control … and I definitely need that during dessert 😉
