Tips For Baking with Berries
Prevent berries from sinking – The best way to prevent berries from sinking in baked goods is to lightly toss them in flour or cornstarch before adding them to the batter.
Folding berries into batter – Always lightly fold the berries into batter. The colour is very strong and if you stir too much you can break up some berries. As well, the colour will run into the batter.
Using frozen berries – Frozen berries should be added to batter while they are still frozen. Allowing the berries to defrost will result in too much liquid and it will completely change the colour of the batter.

Yes, you can substitute frozen berries for fresh berries in baked goods. Just remember to add the berries still frozen so they don’t discolour the batter.

All berries should be washed before baking. But delicately wash them as to not to bruise or destroy the berries. And wash them just before you are using them. Berries that are washed and stored in the fridge will spoil quicker than unwashed berries.
