Almond Cake with Whipped Cream and Balsamic Berries Recipe

Almond Cake with Whipped Cream and Balsamic Berries

Serves 6-8

Dessert is a “piece of cake” when you start with our All-Occasion Almond Cake! Just add fresh berries, enhanced with balsamic, and whipped cream for a beautiful and delicious summer presentation. This cake is not too sweet, so it can be served for brunch as well as an after-dinner dessert.


  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, stemmed and quartered
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, or a combination
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, more to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Metropolitan Market Balsamic Vinegar, more to taste
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream (see Cook’s Tip)
  • 2 Tbsp confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 Metropolitan Market All-Occasion Almond Cake (Bakery)


  1. Combine berries, 1 tablespoon or more granulated sugar, and 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar. Toss gently. Set aside for 20 to 30 minutes or until berries release some of their juices. Berries can be prepared up to a few hours ahead of serving; cover and chill.
  2. Chill mixing bowl and beaters before whipping the cream for best volume. Place cold cream and confectioners’ sugar in mixing bowl and beat with electric mixer to form soft peaks.
  3. To serve, place cake on a platter. Spoon whipped cream into center of cake. Top with berries. Cut into wedges.
  4. Cook’s Tip:
  5. In place of homemade whipped cream (heavy cream and confectioners’ sugar), you can use Isigny Sainte-Mère canned whipped cream.
