Fresh Berries for Dessert

Blueberries and raspberries are at the height of their seasons now, and ripe for transforming into delicious desserts.

Blueberries are a classic component of casual cakes and muffins, such as the colorfully named blueberry boy bait. It’s “really fabulous,” raves newfoodie, “and everyone—boys or not—loved it!” For an elegant dessert, this blueberry buttermilk tart is delicious, says Candy.

Cheese Boy recommends raspberry tiramisu, while kattyeyes likes to add slightly crushed raspberries to brownie batter.

Olallieberry crushes berries a bit to release their juices, pours them into ice cube trays to freeze, and uses them in lemonade, cocktails, and club soda. “Or you can just pop a whole one in your mouth for a mini popsicle!” she says.
