    I used frozen-mixed berries that I thawed using the double-boiler method, then drained in a colander. And although the recipe is perfection as is, I added a tablespoon of fresh lemon rind to bring out the flavor of the berries. Great also as a dessert for people who usually don't eat sweets. The cornmeal gives it a unique texture and adds a slight savory flavor.

    Outstanding. So moist and flavorful! I used a pint and a half of blueberries and it was just right. The cornmeal gives the cake such a great texture. One of my favorite cakes that I've ever made, and I've made a lot!

    This is the best thing I've ever baked. Amazing. Light, fluffy with big vibrant flavors of the berries. If I could I'd have this around all the time but it doesn't last more than a day or so because you can't stop eating it.
