We have lots of blackberry bushes around the village! There are so many blackberries every year and only few people seem to notice. We pick some every day and in the weekend we sometimes go out with a bucket or two and we come home full with juicy blackberries.
Last year I made Blackberry Cupcakes too, and year before I made Blackberry Pies, they were really delicious.
I used at least a cup of blackberries in the batter -which made it look dark like chocolate cake. The frosting is also made with blackberries -although not too many just to give it a soft colour and taste, but it came out very yummy!
