Bursting with Berries Bundt Cake

I love berries.  Love, love, love.  El Hub, however, doesn't.  Something about the texture of the seeds gets to him.  So I stash away berries in my freezer and mastermindfully serve them to him in such a spaced-out way that he tolerates them.  That's nice of me to share, right?  So, when my dad and mom gave me two containers of garden-grown blackberries, I knew I was on my own trying to find something delicious to do with them.  And truly, what could be more perfect than sugar, and a trinity of blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries?  The aroma alone wafting from your oven as this bakes will make your mouth water; the taste is delightful and unforgettable!  (And if El Hub doesn't care for it, great; more for me!!)  And actually, as wonderful as it was the day I baked it, I was even more scrumptious the next day as the flavors really melded together.
Bursting with Berries Bundt Cake
Adapted from "Get-Togethers with Gooseberry Patch"

5 eggs
1 2/3 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 tbl. apple juice
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cups flour, divided
3 cups total of berries, fresh or frozen (I used 1 cup each of blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries)
powdered sugar for garnish

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Spray and flour-coat a bundt pan.

Combine eggs and sugar in a large bowl; set aside.  Beat butter and apple juice until fluffy using the paddle attachment of a stand mixer.  Add egg mixture.  Add baking powder, salt and all flour (except 2 tbl.) to bowl.  Mix until well-blended and no lumps remain.  In another small/medium bowl, combine berries and remaining 2 tbl. flour; toss to coat berries.  Gently fold berries into batter, being careful to not mash them or break them down.  Pour batter into prepared bundt pan.

Bake for 1 hour, until toothpick or cake tester comes out clean.  Remove from oven and cool in the pan 20-25 minutes; turn onto a wire rack or serving platter and cool completely.  Sprinkle top of cake.
