This truly is a beautiful old fashioned comfort dessert and it's also the easiest dessert I've ever made. I can only imagine what it will be like with fresh berries as the store here was out, but I will definitely be trying it with the fresh blackberries when I find them. I used a frozen berry mix with strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries and it was wonderful. Thank you, Brenda!

This was so delicious and ultra easy! I used blackberries and subbed soy milk for regular milk. I did bake it covered for an additional seven minutes after the initial 30 minutes to firm it up a little bit more. The only change I would make next time is to cut the butter amount in half; it was a bit excessive and am sure it would be fine with a little less.

Delicious! Wow...it certainly doesn't get any easier than this! My husband is a huge blackberry fan and he loved this delicious dessert. I baked this in a 7"x11" dish so it took about 45 mins. before it was done, due to the smaller pan. Thank you for sharing this fantastic recipe...it is definitely a keeper!

Oh, thank you Brenda! I agree this is sooooo good, and sooooo easy. I had fresh blackberries that needed to be eaten, and I am so glad I chose this recipe. Mine had a nice solid cake top, with all the berries sunk to the bottom. It took about 40 minutes for mine to get golden brown and start pulling away from the sides, but it was sharing the oven with dinner. :) Yummy out of the oven and yummy leftovers, too! I am now looking at my stash of canned peaches in a whole new light . . .

As much as I dislike giving 1 star rating, I don't have a choice. The only thing I changed up on the was the amount of butter .. as I normally do on baking many things. Other then that, I followed to the "T". The idea of the simplicity sounded good, but the out turn was far less then expectations.

So sad - was super excited to make this and something went wrong. I followed the exact recipe but after baking for 45 minutes, I poured the layer of butter off the top and added some brown sugar to try to dry it out and help it finish baking. I baked it 10 more minutes and finally served. Even after all that extra time, it still wasn't done in the center. Overall taste was really good, but something was off with oven temperature, amount of butter and baking time.
