This cake is good warm or cold and served with whipped topping or ice cream. It's very moist with loads of flavor and can be whipped up in just minutes. Enjoy! —Candy Scholl, West Sunbury, Pennsylvania

"I have made this cake several times using strawberries and blueberries. I love the ease, taste and moistness of the cake. I do have a problem getting it out of the pan. It never looks as neat as the picture. Sometimes the cake breaks up. The last time I made it, it was done around the sides but when I cut it, the middle was not done. Can you suggest any way to make it easier to remove from the pan. Once I did serve it right from the baking pan instead of trying to turn it over."

"So delicious! Followed the recipe. I was worried the raspberry seeds would make the cake too crunchy, but they were just right. Didn't really notice them."

"I have made this cake twice, and it turned out fabulous each time. Marshmallows make the cake a lot lighter. When I serve the cake, I offer some whipped cream to put on top. Wonderful."

"Did not look appealing. I should have just baked the cake then put the fresh fruit on top although it tasted good it did not look appetizing. Would not make this recipe again"

"This recipe was amazing! Made it for Fourth of July and everyone loved it! Instead of a cake mix, I made my own from scratch and it came out perfect. Also, I used artificial sweetener, and added black berries into the recipe. It is fantastic!"
