I made this today and it was delicious. I doubled the recipe and put in a 9 x 13 pan. I also used a mix of frozen blackberries, raspberries, cherries and blueberries and served with whipped cream. It was raved about at our family dinner.

Delicious! I love recipes like this that are not only quick and easy, but yummy too. I used fresh blackberries and old-fashioned oats instead of quick-cooking oats. The juice was a little runnier than we like, so I think next time I will increase the amount of cornstarch. I baked this in a 6"x9" baking dish for 25 minutes. Served warm with vanilla ice cream...yum!

Do not use cornstarch with lemon. Gave it an unpleasant taste using frozen wild blackberries. Other than that taste good.
