Olallieberry Almond Cake

almond olallieberry snack cake

Do you have Olallieberries in your neighborhood? They visit us for a brief few weeks each summer. These sweet little berries can only be found at farm stands. At least here in Orange County, maybe it is different where you are. As soon as I see that sign saying they are here, I am off the street and heading over the bumpy road to the stand.

I searched for a new way to bake something Olallieberries this year and found this lovely recipe. It is a snack cake which is easy to make. There is no frosting, but it does taste great with a dollop of cream. A scoop of ice cream is nice too!

If you don’t have access to Olallieberries, just substitute blackberries or raspberries in the recipe. For the ground almonds I used almond flour from Trader Joe’s. Whole Foods or Sprouts would also carry it.


Mix everything but the berries in a bowl.


Stir in the berries and pour into a cake pan. Bake for about 40 to 50 minutes.
