It's hard for me to rate this because I messed it up SO badly! The end result was actually really delicious, but it was more like a sugary warm fruit pudding... For the crust I split the flour and used 1/2 cup of Quaker Oats and subbed in some brown sugar. This might not have been so bad, but I forget to add the 1/4 cup of flour to the sugar/egg mixture. The top was firmed up from baking but when I cut inside, it was a molten, sugary, fruity mess. Sooo we're just calling it yumberry pudding, because it actually did taste great. The Oats and brown sugar gave some nice texture, I used mixed berries that were nicely tart and the sugar goo amped up the sweetness. My partner said, "It's unlike anything I've every had before..." After we stopped laughing, everyone went in for seconds and agreed that it was still delicious. Looking forward to trying it properly next time!
This was pretty tasty and I could see it with several different fruits. I did like the combination of the hard crust with the softer fruit/nut topping. It is not sweet at all so for me the sauce was a definate topper. My mother made a simple powder sugar icing to top her slices. I didn't have walnuts so we had this with pecans. Thanks for an easy dessert that looked fancy. I also cooked this in a spingform pan.
Delicious! I didn't even put any raspberry syrup or whipped cream on it. It's light, delightful and yummy! This was very easy to make too. I used up some fresh raspberries I had in the fridge. I'm sure any kind of frozen berries would be good in this.
