"This would make a good Independence Day recipe. Especially if you chose to include blueberries and red raspberries or strawberries. The whipped cream would be the white. This could be cut into 12 or 24 pieces. The berries will be throughout the cake, covered with the crunchy cornmeal."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Heat the oven to 325° Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Get out a 9 X 13 inch baking pan and butter it. Place parchment in it, making sure to leave an overhang on each of the long ends (for picking up the cake later). Butter the parchment.

Step 3

Add the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Mix it all together.

Step 4

With a mixer, beat the butter and the 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Beat for about 2 minutes.

Step 5

Add in the eggs one at a time, still using the mixer. Add the vanilla.

Step 6

Put in the flour mixture in three batches, and alternate with two batches of buttermilk (flour, buttermilk, flour, buttermilk, flour). Beat until just combined.

Step 7

Pour into the baking pan. Place the berries over the top, then sprinkle the 2 tablespoons of sugar on top of everything.

Step 8

Place in the oven 1 hour or until golden and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Step 9

Cool completely on a wire rack. Take the cake out of the pan by holding on to the parchment overhang.

Step 10

Cut the Cake into pieces and top each piece with the whipped cream.

We really liked this cake. We used some raspberries that had been frozen. When putting on the cake the raspberries were in clumps. We only made one half. It disappeared in one evening. It was delicious with whipped cream on top.

Very good -- we only used strawberries but enjoyed the cake squares with cool whip. I also didn't have any buttermilk so subbed in sour milk. Even with my minor changes this was a great dessert! Thanks for sharing!
