Think we just are not whole wheat people for sweets-am sure others will love this recipe. I did add more milk to topping-- but maybe European measurements are different than American? Thought the filling and timing were perfect. Sort of wonder if some of the sugar that is in the filling could be put into the topping instead of the filling?? Thanks for sharing awalde.
Your lovely photo got my attention and having just purchased some fresh blackberries I had to make this. The recipe was reduced to 2 servings and baked in individual ramekins. I used gluten free ingredients and left out the amaretto. These were served with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.
There was no way around it ~ By the time I went looking for fresh blackberries for this recipe I couldn't find 'em so used some that I'd frozen to use in smoothies, & that worked well enough, I thought! Made this as an upside-down cake to share with a neighbor couple & it was a huge success! Absolutely wonderful! The recipe was easy & the cake was outstanding ~ A great treat for the end of summer! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
