"This recipe is a childhood favorite that my grandma passed to my mom and now I am passing to my own kids! It is quick and easy, and great for summer picnics. Plus, the little ones are fascinated when I tell them the boiling water is the 'mystery' behind the cake. Also great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!"

We really liked this cake. I would say it is more like a cake-like pie. I guess my pan wasn't deep enough because it overflowed. . .thank goodness I had the pan on top of a cookie sheet.

Thanks for the reviews! Glad you are enjoying this family favorite! If you are having issues with the pie pan overflowing (mine is really deep), feel free to make in a larger casserole dish. I sometimes make in a casserole just to have a prettier dish to take to a party.

this is quite good. i was looking for a recipe to use the last of my blueberry crop and this fit the bill. the only one thing i would change is to add a bit of cornstarch to the berries before putting in the pan. it is a bit soupy when serving. other than that, no complaints. delicious, quick and easy to make. thanks for the post yogurt4k, i will make again!
