This is from our customer in Saratoga, Her name is Mary.
She has added some notes below
This is a recipe that I first made last year, and I wanted to send it to you then, but I never got around to it.
Today I came home from Saratoga market with some of your berries, and I immediately set out to make this delicious and easy cake. I didn't have any buttermilk in the house, so I made some by adding lemon juice to milk. I may have added too many berries because it was not quite cakey enough and had a tendency to fall apart. I hate to admit it, but I ate almost half of the cake for my lunch. !!!!!!
Pictures are from Mary attempt at making this cake.
