It was so good that we’re thinking of making some right now! The recipe calls for strawberry ice cream as a topper instead of the Pepperberry Sorbet, but we bet it’ll still be delicious! There are three components for this recipe, so set aside some time to bake.

    So I work in this outdoor kitchen and I actually have some Comments on how to make it better!
    Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, rotating half way through.

    Also, put the berries on the bottom and cake on the top! That’s how we do it in the kiosk! Then flip upside down when you want to serve. Baking cake on the bottom won’t turn out as well!
