blackberry cornmeal cake

For this cake, I scattered the berries over the cake batter just before baking because I wanted them to sink in just a little, but not too much. This worked! Personally, I really enjoy the gritty texture of a cornmeal cake/muffin that is rich in cornmeal (I used equal parts flour and cornmeal), but if you like a finer texture, reduce the amount of cornmeal and replace it with a little extra flour.
