  • Juneberry Cake

    June 18th, 2022
    cooking, food
    The Juneberries are ripe, and the kids got pretty excited about picking some at the park:

    This is not a berry I knew about growing up. In gardens there were strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, and there were mulberries on street trees, but when I saw these berries I assumed they were ornamental only. A neighbor showed them to me last year, though, and they're pretty good! Some of the flavors remind me of the kind of ripe peach you generally can't get around here.

    The kids were so into picking them that we ended up with about 3 cups. The next day we still had almost as many, so I decided to make what my family calls "peach cake" (regardless of the ingredients). It's lots of raw fresh fruit baked under an eggy cake batter (recipe).

    It came out ok, but not as good as when using conventional fruit; the more subtle flavors of the berries had been baked off. There was an almond flavor, which the internet tells me is from the seeds, but it wasn't any more interesting than if I'd just put in a dash of almond extract.

    Next year I'll probably stick to eating them off the tree.

    Buckingham Palace

    I love England. Especially because of the big castle called Buckingham Palace. I got to see the outside there, but my mom showed me some pictures of the inside. I love it there. But the outside doesn't look very fancy to me. But I never knew why those …
