White Chocolate Blackberry Bundt Cake

white chocolate blackberry bundt cakeBefore we get to this White Chocolate Blackberry Bundt Cake, an unfortunate event leads me to today’s story. On Sunday I went to the beach to meet up with a group of friends, the tide was well in, but we parked ourselves on the hot black sand and wandered over to cool off our feet in the water.

Soon enough a tidal wave came and proceeded to soak all of my belongings. And now it’s been days since I’ve had a phone, it’s sitting in rice in all hope that it will come back to life.

Not having a phone to check my schedule, Instagram or text with has been difficult, it’s like missing something vitally important to continue life with (melodramatic?! slightly).

First world problems I know, but nevertheless it’s a difficulty in full. My best friend called twenty Taylor’s yesterday in the hopes of reaching me, to no avail (although she did come close with a Sylvia). We ended up having a phone conversation like teenagers, well at least that’s how long it’s been since we’ve spoken from a phone line.

When I complained to her how much I’ve missed texting, she replied “you think it’s difficult, I call you more then anyone!”

Life in the twenty first century is fast and there’s no time for home phones. I’m reminded of that Seinfeld episode where they all wanted to meet at the movies, and how the issues they had in doing this proved to be such a massive deal to their night, that was life before cellphones. It would never happen that way now.

Unless the sea chooses to swamp you that is. Now I usually link my little stories to the recipes in my posts, today the only thing I have is that this cake could temporarily take away first world problems you may be having.

Why you’ll love this

That flavor combo!

Sweet white chocolate and tart blackberries are a good combination, and is particularly great if heated up when it’s a couple of days old, slightly warmed with coffee, this cake could make anyone smile.

Not too sweet

The white chocolate isn’t so heavy in the cake that it overpowers the blackberries with sweetness, in fact it’s perfectly balanced!

    • Whip it: Whip the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Tips for the best White Chocolate Blackberry Bundt Cake

Don’t overmix: As is always recommended with any cake batter, the less you mix once the flour has been added the lighter your cake crumb so really fold in the berries slowly and methodically without beating the batter.
