Frosted Blackberry Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
Ann Kelly of Gallatin, Tennessee takes advantage of boxed mixes to bake this moist berry-flavored cake. "My husband and I started watching our fat and sugar intake, so I made several changes to the original recipe to come up with this lighter version," she says. "It's best prepared the day before serving, and it freezes well, too."

"I have made this cake several time. With the frosting is just too sweet for my family. I make mine now in a bundt pan without frosting and have tried different flavors- our favorites are peach and strawberry! It's a very easy recipe and very good. Best thing is it is diabetic friendly!"
