When I went to California a couple of years ago I made sure I visited a bunch of famous restaurants and bakeries. Sweet Lady Jane was one of the bakeries I visited and the triple berry cake they make was one of the most memorable cakes I’ve ever had. Not only was it delicious but it was so beautiful and had a homemade feel to it. I fell in love with the triple berry cake and of course, I ran home and baked this right away. I loved it. It’s definitely a summer cake. Make sure to use fresh berries and keep it in the fridge.
Look at all the berries!! I used strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. Sweet Lady Jane bakery uses blackberries I believe but I’m not a fan of blackberries. Too many seeds can be annoying to eat.
