    I've made this many times, it s my go-to quick cake. It is fail-proof. I've used all different kinds fruit on the cake base, depending on the season. Some that I have tried are blueberries, strawberries, diced peaches, sliced plums, and peeled, diced apples. Sometimes I add a little vanilla or almond flavor or citrus zest, depending on what fruit I am using.

    I made this cobbler today,but instead of using cranberries,I used raisins and sultanas. The cooking time also was longer than was suggested. It took nearly an hour.

    Just made this today ... SUPER yummy .... (I gave it two personal touches: I swirled a few teaspoons of my home-made cranberry sauce into the batter "marbling" it, and then I added some very thin slices of pear before covering with the cranberries)... SCRUMPTIOUS!

    This recipe is amazing! We added juice from a whole orange and the zest from a whole orange as well to give it something extra. I'm at a high elevation so I just baked it for 30 minutes and it turned out perfect. This was so easy to make!

    Turned out amazing and looked just like the picture. I cooked it in a glass 9.5" round pie pan and it was the perfect size. It was still gooey and needed more time at the recommended baking time, but that could just be my crappy oven. I also added some grated orange zest because I can't resist the cranberry/orange duo. Yum! My husband tried to stretch this out as long as he could and only ate one slice a day with coffee for a week. It held up well all week with just a foil cover.

    Using fresh cranberries for the first time, I found this to be very yummy. I brought it to a potluck and it was well received. I wish I knew how to store it after either 8 hours at room temperature or once it has cooled. Fridge? Seal it in a tight container at room temp? Make ahead ok? As a new cook -- these "obvious" questions are not so obvious to me. Thank you for a keeper recipe!

    I have made a similar pie like this and used a deep dish pie pan. The only other thing I added was one teaspoon of pure almond flavor. It is a delicious Thanksgiving dessert especially with ice cream.

    Delicious recipe! I have made it twice and have added some orange zest to the batter for a better flavored cake. It tasted great with the addition!

    This is really good and easy! Even my chocolate loving daughter thought it was great. A nice alternative to pie. Time-saving.
