fluffy sheet cake with blackberry lavender swirl


This simple cake is topped with vanilla and white chocolate buttercream.

If you were to ask us to describe the perfect cake, we’d probably say something along the lines of "fluffy, sweet, and covered in a thick layer of buttercream icing!" Well, this blackberry lavender sheet cake by Tieghan Gerard from Half Baked Harvest has all that and more.

It’s basically a classic vanilla cake on steroids, with dollops of homemade blackberry lavender jam swirled through the batter and the white chocolate buttercream icing. If that doesn't get your tastebuds tingling, then we don't know what will. Tieghan recommends making this delicious treat on rainy summer afternoons.

To accompany you while you embark on your next culinary quest, we’ve cooked up some lovely kitchen merch, including three colourful tea towels and a flower-power apron. The designs are pulled straight from the pages of the frankie 2022 diary, which is full of vintage kitchen-inspired artwork by Pilgrim Hodgson. Find the lot over at the frankie shop.
