"I have made this easy recipe several times for guests and everybody has always loved it"

"If using frozen berries baking time needs to be at least 55 minutes. I made this for a church coffee and several asked for recipe. I would probably not use blackberries as part of fruit again as seeds were larger."

"I made this cake using freshly frozen blackberries. The flavor was good but the blackberry seeds were a bother. Next time I'll use a different berry."

"I made this cake and it was delious. But I used fresh berries instead of

the frozen and was delighted with the results. Everyone raved about it. I also used vanilla yogurt instead of plain."
