This batter needs to be kept to a thickness of 1/2 inch in the pan prior to adding the fruit of choice and crumbs on top. You will have difficulty with it baking completely if the batter is any thicker. I use an oblong cookie sheet with an edge or jelly roll pan.

Very good, easy cake. I made with a few minor changes. After reading reviews, I used a 9 x 13 pan, which baked perfectly in 35 minutes. To the batter I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. I reserved 1 cup of crumbs, to which I added 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons brown sugar. I used approximately 2 cups of fresh blackberries. Everyone loved it and a great cake to use up the never-ending blackberry supply!

We loved this. Based on other reviews, I used a 9x13 pan and then the cooking time was right on. Only slight problem with that is that I think it needs more blackberries when you use a larger pan. Mine were too spread out. Oh well, it was still delicious. Thanks!
