LOVE this cake!

It's black berry season.  I couldn't believe it when I was at the store the other day and they were selling for 50 cents a pack.   I loaded up my cart with plans to freeze some, use some for snacking and others for some of my favorite blackberry recipes.  

This is one of them:

What you need:

1 pkg. (3.4 oz) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
3/4 cup cold milk
1-1/2 cups thawed COOL WHIP whipped topping, divided
1 cup each fresh raspberries and sliced strawberries
1/4 cup Blackberries
1 pkg. pound cake
1/4 cup Orange juice

How to make it:

Beat pudding mix and milk with whisk in medium bowl 2 min.  Stir in 1 cup cool whip.
Combine berries; reserve 1/2 cup
Cut cake into three layers
Brush cake layers with juice
Stack cake layers on plate, filling each layer with half each of the remaining berries and pudding mixture.  Top with remaining cool whip and reserved berries.  Refrigerate 4 hours.


HERE is another one of my favorite blackberry recipes.
