      Such a fresh twist! SUPER recipe for fresh berries and basil. Easy, beautiful and tasty. Love the cornbread texture.

      AMAZING! I served it warm as a birthday cake and it was devoured. I wanted a healthy-ish cake that used up some of my cornmeal. This was great. Perfect directions, perfect measurements. I used brown sugar, and sprinkled an extra couple tbsps of it over the berries before pouring in the batter. I served it plain- it didn't need a thing with it! I used blackberries and raspberries, and I went ahead and spread them ALL on the bottom of the cake pan- I didn't think they would stick as a post-baking topping. Only word of warning is- don't put in birthday candles while the cake is still hot! They melted into it. :)
