Berries are one of the best perks of spring and summer and it pays to get a good early start on all the fun. Whether you shop for yours or pick your own, there’s lots of deliciousness to be had. Berry desserts are always some of the most popular recipes here at tvfgi, and today I’ve gathered a few of my faves.



Strawberry Lemon Blondies

These strawberry lemon blondies have been one of my most popular desserts here at tvfgi. I think there’s something irresistible about the combination of berries and lemon–and these moist bars are just the thing to whip up with the season’s freshest strawberries.

Individual Raspberry Pavlovas

Individual pavlovas, or meringues, are an easy and elegant way to elevate beautiful summer berries. Raspberries have such a nice tart, sweet flavor that pairs perfectly with airy, cloud-like meringue

Blueberry Zucchini Snack Cake with Lemon Buttercream

This classic, homey snack cake is refreshed by the unexpected combination of zucchini, blueberry, and lemon. It’s quintessential summer in every bite.

Raspberry Lemon Cake

This cake was a reader favorite this season, have you tried it? I think it has something to do with that thick layer of lemon buttercream…yum!

Blueberry Poppy Seed Squares

I love desserts that come in bar-form, and these blueberry poppy seed squares are really unique and delicious. A thick poppy seed paste teams up with a buttery, crumbly shortbread base and delicious summer blueberries for an unforgettable treat.

    I feel like this is a travesty, especially during fruit season, but would this recipe work with frozen blueberries? I have two large bags of them in my freezer.

      Most recipes that use fresh berries can be made with frozen berries, so go for it! I would use them straight from frozen.
