One Bowl Fresh Berry Cake

I love baking on the weekend. A cup of tea in one hand, my recipe book in the other. Before everyone has even woken up in the morning, I’m already done making something delicious for breakfast, whenever the family wakes up for breakfast. This one bowl fresh berry cake is perfect. No extra dishes, no messing around. It’s quick and easy, perfect for the mornings.
