Can I use homemade cornbread mix?
Yes! You can use your own homemade cornbread mix. To make homemade mix you can use cornmeal, oil, and eggs. I’m from the south y’all, I can make cornbread with my eyes closed. To make this recipe you use a box mix like Jiffy or make your own. Just use whatever you use at home.
Can I use frozen berries instead of fresh?
Yes you can use frozen berries to make this cake. I keep berries in my freezer at all times and pull them out to put in this cake. You can even substitute with a berry blend just use two cups of the blend instead of a single cup of each.
What could I top this cake with?
I like to top the cake with just a simple dollop of whipped cream. It really doesn’t need frosting. However, if you love frosting go ahead and top it with your favorite vanilla frosting. Or you can just lightly dust the top of the cake of powdered sugar.
