    It was really good. Also makes a good breakfast cake.

    Tastes amazing! I've repeated this recipe several times with whatever fruit is in season, often blueberries or cranberries. My family thought that cranberry would turn out tart, but between the batter and the sugar topping it was still sweet and delightful--no extra sweetness needed.
    Pretty much like the picture. Definitely use a high sided pan

    The rustic look is deceiving but once you take a bite into it, it’s a heavenly short cake. So far made it 3 times. First time as per recipe then second and third time I replaced the milk with heavy cream. I also topped it with demerara cane sugar to make it crispy. It is best once cooled off on the same baked day.

    Turned out to be the perfect summer cake! So light and fluffy, and not too overly sweet (you can definitely cut out a little bit on the sugar however) 🍓

    Cake was delicious, but a bit too sweet. Could lower sugar by a couple of tablespoons. Also, it cooked for and hour and twenty minutes.

    You must make this cake and eat it the same day. Gets a bit soggy on day 2, but still ok. Absolutely the best use of summer strawberries in a easy and delicious cake. I only make when guests are expected or I will eat the entire thing!!!

    Love it! I've also made it with raspberries to good effect. I imagine this would work with most berries. It does sometimes take longer than an hour in the oven though - significantly, maybe caused by making two?

    Turn out great. I add small chopped up strawberries to the batter as well as putting strawberries on top.

    awesome, I love it! I spread the batter out into a muffin pan, so I enddd up with individual little cakes. I used silicone muffin liners and they baked beautufully. i used strawberries, dark choco chunks and chopped pecans. ..dustedvthem with sugar and yum!

    Such a simple but effective cake. The recipe is so easy to make and the taste is an explosion of flavour. It is definitely one of my favourites!

    Seriously delicious. Very easy to prepare and keep an eye on. Sprinkle with some powdered sugar at the finish for an extra bit of flavor.
