Hello everyone!

I apologize for the delay, I know it's been a while... But, as you can see, "My Cupcake Notebook" has been completely renovated! This is something that has been on my mind for some time now, and I finally could do it. Do you like it?

Today, to celebrate Autumn, I bring you a recipe with blackberrys!

It's a very light sponge cake, perfect for breakfast or a snack. I prepared it into 4 mini cake tins, but the recipe can be done in a big loaf tin, you just have to increase the oven time a little bit more.

It is a sweet sponge cake too, but the blackberries give it an acid note that contrasts perfectly with its sweetness. If you don't happen to have any blackberries at hand, feel free to use any berries that you want; raspberries or blueberries would work perfectly fine with the same recipe. 

Here you have the recipe, you will be amazed at how easy it is!
