I love berries. This recipe can also be made with apples.

Wow, this was spectacular! A great way to use a bumper crop of berries. I cooked it in a deep dish cast iron skillet which was perfect. It does seem like a whole lot of syrup, but it absorbs beautifully and leaves a wonderful golden crust on the rolls. Thanks you--I'll definitely be making this again!
