"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."

"I made this cake and thought it was just OK. It tasted good enough but the texture of the cake was not to my liking. I probably would not make it again."

"I was right to question the frozen berries---after 1 hour of cooking, the center was still soup. I followed the directions precisely. The moisture from frozen fruit is not appropriate for this recipe. I would suggest fresh fruit, or thaw and drain."

the fruit and brown sugar mix  on top of that instead of going to the trouble
of making the cake from scratch [quote user="llaaling"] Use Jiffy cake mix in place of what, exactly?"

"If the berries and fine crumb mixture is deleted from the recipe, is the cake dense enough to be used for shortcake. I am having trouble finding a cake receipe rather than bisquits for strawberry shorcake."
