I recently picked up some barley flour and fell in love with it. We tend to associate whole grain flours with heartiness and heaviness, but this is neither ? it?s silky and delicate, like the best cake flour you?ve ever bought, and it has a subtle creamy, nuttiness to it that goes fantastically with berries. This cake works like a dream with 100% all-purpose flour but if you?ve got barley flour around, swapping it in for half the volume is beyond delicious, adding a real depth to a deceptively simple cake. I am ever-so-slightly on the fence about the sweetness of this cake. I like it, but I wouldn?t hate the batter itself with 2 tablespoons less sugar (i.e. 7/8 cup sugar instead of a whole one). If that?s your inclination, go ahead and dial it back as well. Leave the sugar on top. It contributes to the berries turning into jam.
