Cornmeal and Berry Cakes

This month on Tuesdays with Dorie we have selected two summer fruit desserts. This week I decided to make the Cornmeal and Berry Cakes from Baking Chez Moi. 

The recipe calls for raspberries but I substituted blueberries and I think any berry would work well in these cakes. This recipe came together quickly and easily from ingredients I had on hand. Everybody loved them. I opted not to make the lemon drizzle glaze as my life is sweet enough being in a baking group.

Tuesdays with Dorie is an international baking group working our way through Dorie's cookbooks. We do not publish the recipes instead we encourage you to buy the book. To see what others made this week head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.

  1. I definitely think blueberries would work here (yes, any berry) but next time you should try the glaze - so good!

  2. What a sweet statement! There is so much sugar already, drizzle is really not necessary.
