Summer Berry Desserts

Boozy Berry-Topped Tres Leches Cake

This take on the classic Mexican tres leches cake is generously topped with tequila-spiked whipped cream and sweet, juicy summer berries.

Blueberry-Lime Pound Cake

Lime zest and a tangy lime-juice glaze add zip to the sweet flavor of fresh blueberries in this moist, tender pound cake.

Almost-Instant Yellow Cupcakes with Strawberry Cream Frosting

Perfect for last-minute desserts yet still from-scratch delicious, these cupcakes can be whipped up in the time it takes the oven to heat.

Fresh Berry Pavlova

The baked meringue shell for this classic Australian dessert is crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle, and its slightly concave center makes a natural bowl for whipped cream and fruit.

Vegan Vanilla-Mixed Berry Muffins

We have a rule at Flour Bakery that if something is labeled “vegan” it has to be just as delicious to those who are not concerned about the label as to those who are.

Blueberry Streusel Bars with Lemon-Cream Filling

Always a hit at summer picnics, these addictive squares strike the perfect balance between tart and sweet and chewy and crunchy.

Fourth of July Mixed Berry Cobbler

This oversize red, white, and blue cobbler is designed to feed a Fourth of July party crowd.

Classic Lattice-Top Blueberry Pie

Big, sweet summer berries are the heart and soul of this classic pie.

Mixed Berry Tarts with Lemony Filling

You can decorate these delicious tarts with berries before serving them, or set out dishes of berries and let guests garnish their own tarts with the berries of their choice.

Strawberry-Mint Shortcakes

Minty sugar-crusted biscuits, strawberries, and sweetened sour cream come together for a new take on a traditional favorite.

Blueberry-Vanilla Cream Cheese Pies

These portable pies are like mini blueberry cheesecakes wrapped in puff pastry.

Strawberry Shortbread Tart with Orange-Ricotta Cream

A press-in crust makes this impressive-looking tart a breeze to prepare.

Mixed-Berry Pie

Do you like your berry pies with fresh or cooked berries? Here, you can have it both ways: a jammy filling of cooked blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, topped with a cloud of whipped cream and a handful of fresh berries for bright color.

Rustic Red Raspberry Turnovers

The only thing better than juicy, in-season berries are rich, buttery pastries made with juicy, in-season berries.

Blueberry Pie Parfaits with White Chocolate Cream

This creative spin on the classic blueberry pie is a parfait made from layers of buttery almond-thyme streusel and warm blueberries, topped off with a rich, lemony white-chocolate cream and a sprinkle of chopped white chocolate.
