Mixed Berry Cake (Strawberry, Blueberry, Blackberry and Raspberry)

I go crazy when I see these fully colored berries during the winter. They are so sweet and very colorful and very tasty during the winter. I got all the berries strawberry, blueberry, blackberry and raspberry and wanted to make something for Anush. The only thing that I can make that he likes is a cake, but I cannot use the whole ones, as he would not like to eat it that way, so wanted to hide all the berries into the cake. What better way to make a cake with hidden berries....hmm...then I just thought I need to make a puree of it. Yes, I made this cake and he liked it very much, that really makes me happy. :)

3 cups Self Raising flour
2 cups Granulated Sugar
3/4 cup Vegetable Oil / Unsweetened Apple sauce
1 1/2 cup pureed Berries (I used Strawberry, Blueberry, Raspberry and Blackberries all 1/4 cup)
1 tsp pure Vanilla Extract
4 Eggs, beaten ( I substituted two eggs with (3tbsp Falxmeal + 5 tbsp water = 1 Egg), so you need to multiply the amount for substituting two eggs)

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Spray with cooking oil/butter spray on cake pan/or any baking dish, and sprinkle flour all over and shake off the excess by tapping.

3. Meanwhile, beat the eggs with hand mixer/stand mixer until it's light and fluffy and the color of the eggs should have turned pale color along with the flax meal and water (along with the eggs) for about 4-5 mins.

4. Now add the rest of the ingredients first the wet ingredients and then the flour combine again with a hand mixer/stand mixer until you get a smooth non-lumpy batter for about 3-4 mins.

5. Pour this batter into the baking pan and bake it for about 26 to 28 mins or until the top is slightly golden and if a toothpick or skewer inserted comes out clean.

6. Transfer the cake on a wire rack and let it cool.
(Note: You can add whipped cream on top mixed with mixed berry jelly/preserves/jam to make it extra rich)
