A few days ago we went on a hike and found a huge row of blackberry bushes that had not been picked. We spent a couple hours picking blackberries. When we got home we found we had about 10lbs of blackberries. I turned some into jam, froze some and with a little more we made this scrumptious pike. I call it a pike because it is a little flat like a pie but is fluffy like a cake. Pie + Cake = Pike. Super easy to make with only 4 ingredients.
BLACKBERRY UPSIDE-DOWN PIKE
1 box of White cake mix – I prefer Pilsbury
1 can of Sprite / 7up
1/4 cup Sugar
2 cups Blackberries
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spread the blackberries on the bottom of a greased 9″ cake pan.
Sprinkle the sugar on top of the blackberries.
Pour the box of cake mix on top of the sugared blackberries and spread evenly around the pan.
Pour the can of sprite on top of the cake mix. Be sure to cover the whole cake while pouring. The sprite will foam up as it mixes with the cake mix.
Gently mix the cake mix and sprite just a little. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes. Pull out of the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Then tip upside-down on to a serving platter and allow to cool completely. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. So yummy!!!!
