    I had lots of blackberries, so I made a double batch in two 8x8 pans. I just threw the second pan in the garbage. It sounded good and looked good, but it was not. I should have just made a regular coffee cake and mixed the berries in.

    It only gets a 5 if you make it as a coffee cake in a 8" square pan. I tried it several times in a loaf pan and the center was always goopy. It comes out perfectly as a coffee cake. Everytime I take it some where there are never any leftovers, and I make sure I have plenty of copies of the recipe with me.

    I was really happy the way this bread baked up. I actually doubled the recipe because I had a lot of berries to use up. The loaves baked up very high and the topping was very attractive. The only thing I would change is the amount of sugar. It wasn't very sweet at all and I was actually kind of shocked when I tried a slice. But, I'm the oddball of the bunch and everyone else thought it was good. Thanks for the recipe!
