Strawberry blueberry cake: so sweet, so simple

I love berries, they are full of nutrients and so delicious. Nothing better than a strawberry blueberry cake to get the best out the berries! They give the cake a fresh and creamy touch!

I love to make this cake in the mountains where I can get fresh berries or even pick them by myself.

Furthermore, I would taste this cake together with a fruity white wine as a Moscato from Asti, from a region in the north of Italy called Piedmont.
