To say the least this will be a week I will never forget and will take with me forever through my blogging journey.  Although it’s been tough, almost to the point of wanting to throw in the towel, and more than a few tears shed I’ve realized that the experience of blogging and meeting so many wonderful people in and out of the food community and sharing my little bit of love for everything food is worth the unexpected and sometimes cruel realities of managing a site on the world wide web.

With that said, on to the main reason for starting my site, sharing my time in the kitchen, ups and downs. Today is definitely an up day.  Raspberry, Blueberry, Cream Cheese and Mascarpone Pound Cakes are extremely delicious, light and full of fresh berry goodness.   I’ve used this base recipe for many years, can’t even remember where I first spotted it but it’s the kind of recipe you can switch up and add whatever fruit and flavourings you want to use.

One tip, that I forgot to use myself this time, that I would like to share with you, put your berries in a fine-mesh sieve, take some of the flour from the amount called for in the recipe and toss the berries in the flour, this prevents them from sinking to the bottom of the batter.

Yesterday was one of those crazy, busy days for us.  My son, Matt, had an early appointment at the hospital to get his cast changed and then I was off to my specialist appointment and then into the kitchen to make something delicious to share.  The phone was ringing off the hook, Kisses (my little pup) was scratching on my leg the entire afternoon looking for some love, I had so many visitors popping in and out and the kid’s had friends upon friends stopping by.    They were all hoping to dive right in to these little cakes, but it was hands off until the photos were taken.

You should have seen my kitchen, there was stuff every where.  Usually I am so well organzied and I clean as I go but it was very difficult to do when so much was going on.  Luckily they turned out perfect.

Wishing you all a great weekend!

    […] the mad confusion of yesterday has spilt on to today.  Hope you enjoy the Raspberry, Blueberry, Cream Cheese and Mascarpone Pound Cakes I shared with you earlier today but I completely forgot to share my other delicious treat with you. […]

    Hi Grace,

    This berry pound cake treat looks absolutely scrumptious! I grow my own raspberries and can’t wait to try it. Can I use a muffin stone for these?

  5. Grace Says:

    Catherine if a muffin stone is a muffin pan, absolutely! I’ve never heard of that term before.
