This recipe for Blackberry Bundt Cake is one of those recipes that everyone used to make all of the time back in the '60s, but have since forgotten about. That's a shame, because this cake is very flavorful. By adding whole blackberries as decoration, it makes it a very appealing cake.

The only thing that might be difficult about making this Bundt cake is finding the powdered blackberry gelatin. We don't believe JELL-O makes it any longer, but Royal still does.


  • 1 box white cake mix, or yellow cake mix

  • 1 (3-ounce) box blackberry gelatin

  • 1 cup walnuts, lightly toasted and chopped

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil, or butter, melted and cooled

  • 2 cups blackberry wine, divided

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1 pint whole blackberries, rinsed and dried, for garnish
