Great Texture and Amazing Taste

You can make this berry cake for camping or for at home. Everyone will love it and ask for more. The substitutions are all those we have used and love. My grandson learned to bake using this recipe. Don't worry if parts still look like the cake mix, it's supposed to be that way. Cook it longer if you like it really brown. The timing I use makes it moist, juicy and full of flavor. When camping, you can even use the fresh berries you have gathered nearby. The berries used here are all gathered from our farm. If you can't get fresh, then use frozen or freshly canned.

From my house to yours: Eat up and enjoy.
