Very Berry Cake

I made this cake last weekend after my husband requested a cake with fruit. It is a simple yellow cake recipe with frozen berries added to the batter.

1 yellow cake mix for a large cake (used only 1 cup of sugar)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 eggs
1-2 cups frozen berries (I used a mixture of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)

1. Mix all the ingredients except berries in a bowl. An electric mixer was useful for this step.
2. Once the batter is smooth, gently stir in the berries until evenly distributed.
3. Pour batter into a cake pan prepared with butter and flour.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes for a bundt pan. Other shaped pans would likely take less time. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
5. Turn cake onto a plate and let cool.

Hi Michelle. My name is Jenny and I am considering moving to Loomis. I love the rolling hills peaceful countryside. I am a little worried about feeling like I am out in the middle of nowhere, though. Any thoughts or comments on this?

Re: Jenny - Regarding your concern about feeling out in the middle of nowhere. Most places in Loomis are only a 10 minute drive to Interstate 80 and about 20 minutes away from the Galleria Mall in Roseville. True you are not likely to be able to walk 5 minutes and encounter restaurants, shopping, and a city-like atmosphere. But that is one of the benefits of living here. I hope you find a home and come to love living in Loomis as much as I do.
