Moist and delicious! I played around with the all purpose-wheat flour ratio. I also added a pecan/brown sugar/cinnamon crumble on the top. I love this coffee cake recipe!

This cake is not sweet - if you want a wholesome tasting cake with a bit of tartness - this is it.

This is an excellent coffee cake. It is very moist, lots of flavor, but not too sweet. I made it with blueberries and cherries instead of blackberries. I will definitely make this again!

I used blueberries instead of blackberries. It is a very healthy snack cake that my family enjoys. For a really special treat, add a little syrup or molasses...it tastes like a blueberry pancake!

Although I've had better tasting coffee cake, this one is not overly sweet & it doesn't overwhelm a good cup of coffee. Great texture. I used frozen blackberries which compliments the wheat flour well. For those who want a sweeter taste, you might use 1 3/4 cup of brown sugar (or add 1/2 c white sugar instead).

This was great! My husband LOVED it and so did our kids. I thought it was great, but I took it literally that I could use frozen, so it was a bit wet and gooey. Hubby and kids, didn't even blink but gobbled it up. ( I did find the recipe while browsing and was to impatient to defrost my berries) I will ABSOLUTELY make this again, and again. In fact i think it will be what I take to potlucks for now on!I do wish it had said thawed frozen berries, just for silly newbies like me! ; )

My husband was skeptical but once he tasted it he didn't quiet eating it until it was all gone.
