This easy recipe for Polish tangerine-blackberry Bundt cake, or mandarynka jeżyna ciasto Bundt is made with a packaged yellow cake mix, fresh berries, sour cream and eggs. Packaged cake mixes have reached even the remotest villages in Poland these days. If you like, you can substitute an orange cake mix for the yellow cake mix, but I think the flavor is too artificial. Here are ways to use blackberries in Eastern European recipes.
