Upside-Down Berry Cake

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

    Bizarre! My marshmallows all rose to the top, creating a weird deflated crust. The raspberries made it too seedy, the flavor was...funny. I agree with another poster, making a fruit compote and putting it over the plain cake would have been a better use of the ingredients. I will not make this again.

    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!

    I thought this cake was awesome! The flavor of all the berries was quite good. I used extra berries (can you really have too many? ;) I also used pecans because I don't like walnuts but I think next time I make it I will not use any nuts. I really like the flavor of just the berries and the cake. I will be eating a lot of this without a doubt.

    Made this cake tonight. I just mixed sugar directly into fruit (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries), let the fruit make it's own juice and poured directly into the glass cake pan, sprinkled nuts on the fruit, and mixed the marshmallows into the batter, did not use gelatin. Oh so moist and yummy. My son and husband gobbled it up. Will definitely make again.
