One of my favorites times of the year and childhood

memories were off to pick blackberries or raspberries.

Then cakes, cobblers, and jams that came out of mom's kitchen.

Here was the first recipe I remember we had at the beginning of the season.

A delicious buttery scratch cake with whipped cream and just a hint of cinnamon made us know summer is near.

Here are two favorite recipes, one is blackberry coffee cake and the other a cinnamon sour cream coffee cake.
