Simple Vanilla Cake Recipe

On Friday when I was at my local farmers market the first thing I saw was berries. Normally I would have not taking a second glance because in November berries are very expensive here. But I happened to glance at the price and was shocked. They were $3 cheaper then at my grocery store.

So YES, I grabbed the organic raspberries and blueberries and then instantly knew I needed to go home and bake a cake for these beauties.

That is where this recipe for Simple Vanilla Cake came from-the need for me to have a vanilla cake for some fresh berries.

I never know where the idea for new recipes will come from and sometimes its a simple as finding berries at the farmers market.

I cut the slices in half, added a dollop of whipped cream and a few berries. Placed top of cake slice on and then another dollop of cream and berries.
