Wild berry, strawberry and lemon cake

Once again, super easy to make. It will not take more than 10 minutes to put together before placing in the oven. I am wanting to incorporate more fresh fruits into my baking and I thought this to be an easy way of doing it. With the summer just around the corner and with the warm weather, I always feel like eating more fruits. I hope you try this cake because for sure it isn’t going to disappoint.
