Healthy, because

Even smarter

Blackberries are native superfoods, as they are full of healthy ingredients. Antioxidants protect our cells from premature aging and keep us young for a long time. Contained iron stimulates blood formation and ensures healthy oxygen transport in the body. Thanks to the fibre pectin, they do our stomach good and can lower blood fat levels.

Not blackberry season? You can also prepare the recipe for the blackberry cake with frozen berries, defrost them beforehand and drain them well. The cake can also be baked with other berries, for example, how about a raspberry cake? For chocolate fans you can add 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to the dough. Either way, the cake will go down well without refined sugar with a nutty flavour.
