Summer time means an abundance of fresh berries and that means all sorts of desserts can be made. From cakes, to muffins, cobblers and more. These berry recipes to make this summer will not disappoint your family and friends.
Growing up in upstate New York, mean that summers always filled with picking fresh berries. We could walking in our back yard (mind you that means a huge hay field and forest, since we lived on a farm) and find berries wherever we went. When we wants a WHOLE lot to make a pie let’s say, we would head to the local orchard and pick them.
We would all head out with our buckets and fill them up. Ok, now that meant a few went straight to my mouth. You know, quality control. Sure, that’s what I was doing. So every summer I love finding new ways to mix them into a dessert.
Like these berry recipes. Oh all these sweet juicy berry recipes…
Berry Recipes You Must Make This Summer
These easy muffins are made moist with buttermilk, and loaded with sweet juicy strawberries. I sprinkle a little streusel over each muffin before baking for a sweet crunch.
This fluffy and moist pound cake, is made with sour cream and fresh strawberries are folded into the batter. And then a strawberry glaze is poured over it for even more strawberry flavor.
These bars couldn’t be easier to make. Made in one bowl, and they are ready to bake in minutes. I used strawberries and fresh sliced rhubarb. If you can’t find rhubarb then feel free to use all strawberries or swap out with another berry.
This mousse couldn’t be easier and is so refreshing to make for a spectacular dessert to serve friends. It’s made with no eggs, so it’s super easy to make and is ready to be chilled in 10 minutes.
These buttermilk scones are moist, flaky, and tender. I fold strawberries and orange zest into the dough before baking these. Top with a sweet orange glaze when you’re done!
This all strawberry pie is a showstopper. With a little orange zest, and nutmeg to complement the berries, and a lattice top your family will be impressed and asking for seconds!
I love cobblers because they are super easy to make and come together in minutes! I used strawberries and raspberries, but really any combination would work.
If you have a few bananas that need to be used up then this super moist banana bread bursting with fresh blueberries is it.
If you don’t want to scoop muffin batter, than make this quick and easy muffin bread bursting with blueberries instead. And it’s made in one bowl!
I just love these slightly sweet blueberry muffins sweetened with a bit of orange and topped with a crunchy streusel topping.
I wasn’t a huge of blueberry pie, but my brother and dad is. So I always make them one every year. But when I topped it with a streusel I found exactly what my blueberry pies were missing this whole time!
One of my favorite combination for scones is this blueberry lemon version. With fresh blueberries, lemon zest, and a lemon glaze drizzled over them these are perfect brunch treat.
Liven up your crumb cake by tossing in a few blueberries and a little lemon zest. And when you top the cake with a crunchy streusel it’s a great excuse to eat cake for breakfast if you ask me.
Blondies are my go to dessert for parties because they are super easy to make. And this time I tossed in sweet juicy raspberries and paired them with decadent white chocolate for a killer combination.
One of the first recipes I learned to make at a culinary school (for fun, not professionally!) was a lemon pound cake. I took that version and baked it into a loaf pan and added sweet raspberries. Just don’t forget the bright lemony glaze to drizzle on top!
Berry buttercream can be tricky to make. But I’ll show you how! And then swirl it on top of these luscious lemon cupcakes.
This may look like a complicated dessert to make, but it might be one of the easiest desserts to make on this blog. The streusel topping is used for the topping and bottom crust. With just 2 peaches, and fresh raspberries sprinkled on the crust before baking it’s one impressive and crazy delicious dessert. (Ice-cream optional…but not really)
Nothing says summer like a strawberry shortcake. And this light fluffy sponge cake layered with whipped cream and strawberries is the showstopping summer dessert.
