"Very easy to make. Everyone loved it!"
"I loved this not only because it was simple and delicious and my family loved it but also because I had all of the ingredients on hand!! This is a keeper at my house!"
"Loved this, it was delicious, sweet and easy! That's my kind of recipe!"
"This was very quick and easy to put together. I confess I used more berries, only cause I had them on hand-and put this in a 7x11 pan because of it. It was very nice, and a keeper. I liked the crisp texture of the crumb topping, and the base stayed crisp also."
"Truly delicious & comforting! I added some almond extract to the crumb mixture & it came out just lovely:) Thank you so much for sharing this, it will be added to my recipe library!"
"I would like to know the nutrition counts on this recipe? Does anyone have it?"
"I love recipes like this! Versatile and foolproof. I don't usually change a recipe when trying for the first time; and I am one to save it until I go to the store to buy the called-for ingredients, but, this time, I had just come home from the store and really wanted to try this recipe. Sooooo, I made do with what I had on hand.....white cake mix, cherry preserves and frozen cherries. Added a splash of Chambord (felt so creative!) and it was wonderful! Thanks so much for inspiring me!"
"Wonderful! My family loved this recipe....and I followed it exactly as directed.I bet this would be good too with apricot jam and apricots..but It's good as it is too :)"
