    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!"

    This was really good! I used a 9x9 pan and I'm glad I did as I think it would've been close to overflowing in an 8x8 once baked. Had to bake for almost 50 minutes. Used skim milk and as the blueberries I had were getting old and starting to shrivel up, I used a little over 2 cups in order to use them up. Very moist and *full* of berries. Thanks so much for the recipe Michelle!

    This is so good and so moist! I used whole wheat pastry flour and soy milk plus frozen blueberries. I used a 9x9 pan that I sprayed but did not flour. It took up the whole pan and got nice and brown. Very very moist with a lovely molasses flavor. Plain with some milk it was lovely. Thanks Michelle.


I am from Newfoundland and I have been living in Nova Scotia for the last 9 years. I have been married to the greatest man for the last 11 years and we have two daughters 4 and 6. The 4 year old is just like me and the six year old just like her dad. I care for kids in my home so my kids never needed a sitter. Not an easy job by no means, the house is always a mess and if it were not for Zaar we would never have a good meal. One thing you will notice is that I can't spell to save my life. I get my six year old to spell words I am stuck on.
