This came from a Newfie cookbook mom used when I was young. Very tasty comes out moist and is great served with ice cream, or whipped cream.

So moist, so easy, so delicious!!! I made up a generous 2 cups of berries with mostly blueberries and partly gooseberries, and what an extra treat that was. I used an 8 x 8 baking dish with no overflow problem, and baked the cake for about 46 min. I take up the mantra of another reviewer: "ya gotta try this one!"
