Super moist yellow cake mix




Sour cream

Fresh blackberries

White granulated sugar

Ground cinnamon

Pecans or walnuts

Powdered sugar

Equipment you will Need:

Large bowl

Small bowl


10 inch bundt pan

Cooking spray

Note: I have not tried this cake with frozen blackberries but see no reason why you could not use the frozen if thawed and drained well. TSLCBlackberryCoffeeCake1

  • 1 15.25 ounce box super moist yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts pecans or walnuts


  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons milk


  • In a large bowl using a mixer combine the yellow cake mix, butter, eggs, milk and sour cream. In a smaller bowl combine the blackberries, sugar, cinnamon and nuts. Gently mix together with a spoon.
  • Spray a 10 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Pour in the cake mix batter then gently swirl in the blackberries until covered. I use a kitchen knife to do this.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes checking to make sure cake is done in center. Let cool 10 to 15 minutes and remove from cake pan. You can just sprinkle with powdered sugar or add the glaze

Glaze Instructions

  • Whisk together and drizzle over cake.


I have not tried this cake with frozen blackberries but see no reason why you could not use the frozen if thawed and drained well. Do not follow the directions on the cake mix box but use the directions above to make this cake.
