Blackberry Strudel Cake

June 28, 2014Teresa

Blackberry Strudel Cake is one dynamite cake! It’s really more like a coffeecake than a traditional cake. You can serve it for either breakfast or dessert. Regardless, it’s a spectacular cake that will quench any sweet tooth craving! It has a delightful combination of flavors using a cake mix and yeast in the crust layer. It’s spread with blackberry pie filling. A streusel topping is added over that. After baking, a luscious powdered sugar icing with almond extract is added. Talk about yummy!

What makes this dessert even better is it’s really fairly easy to make. I doubt I spent more than 15 minutes preparing the dessert. That even included the icing layer. For very little work, you get a really scrumptious dessert or breakfast coffeecake.

This is a story of good intentions gone awry! I made up this dessert a couple of weeks ago. I froze it with the intention of taking it along with me on our trip to Kaibeto, Arizona. Several members from our church spent last week there working with a Navaho church in the area. I had intended to bring it!

For some crazy reason when I was packing up all the coolers, all my baked goods got left behind! There were quite a few delicious goodies I had baked up in advance. I hoped to lessen my cooking load once I got there. To no avail! We were about half way there when I realized I had forgotten to pack them. Talk about being bummed out!

Our pastor’s house flooded late last week. So I pulled this cake out of the freezer and brought it to them instead. I also made his favorite Roast Beef dinner. The adults and teenagers on our trip to Arizona got enough of my baked goods during the week. They just didn’t get this one!

Another great thing about this recipe is you can make it with just about any kind of pie filling. The original recipe was for Cherry Strudel Cake and that was superb. Since I had extra cans of blackberry and blueberry pie filling on the shelf, those were what got made. Same great recipe, just a little different taste.

This is a fantastic fruity-type cake dessert or coffeecake recipe. I recommend it for special occasion brunches or baby showers. It’s also terrific for a company dessert, potluck or an office party. While Blackberry Strudel Cake is a little ooey and gooey, your guests will love it!

    That sounds really good! I would like to learn how to make fry bread. Cooking Classy had a recipe for it on her site recently.

      It was sensational. They showed me how they stretched the dough for frying. It was really cool. The key is having really hot oil, that way the bread turns out soft. If the oil isn’t hot enough the bread turns out hard like crackers!

    Hi Teresa, I felt so sad for you when I read you forgot all your baked goods for your trip! I would have been so frustrated. How was your time in Arizona? I have never heard of that city before. This cobbler looks wonderful as all of your cobblers do! Ooey and gooey is never a problem to me!:)

      Well, we’re finding other uses for all those goodies. They’ll certainly get eaten. We were on a Navaho Reservation in north Arizona. We were treated to some of the best Fry Bread and Navaho Tacos you’ll ever eat! 🙂
