I found this recipe in a magazine a long time ago, but modified it over the years. We enjoy its combination of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and nectarines, particularly when the cake is served warm with low-fat frozen yogurt. —Lisa Darling, Rochester, New York

"I really enjoyed this recipe. My husband on the other hand LOVED this recipe. He said next time I make will make it may have a serving size of 1 instead of 20. We both agreed that it is good for desert as well as breakfast and a tea. I like that it uses fresh or frozen fruit. I had a little problem with the directions the first time but I'll get it right next time. I could go on and on. Just make it."

"Vollie at a Sr. Cit'z meal prep center (right at 1,000 meals per day) and we do something very close to this.

'Nuff said?"

"I clipped this recipe from Taste of Home several years ago. It is one of my favorite "coffee cake" recipes or healthy dessert recipes. I was glad to see it posted as I need to make something yummy for a neighborhood breakfast so this will be it!"
