This was the second time in my life to eat mulberries and while I thought they were just ok on their own I really loved them in this cake! The ingredients were simple enough that I was able to put it together at 9:00 p.m. in my little kitchen in China (though I did have to ask a neighbor for an egg!) Read More

The crumble top was too much sugar. I will try it again next year when my tree fruits again. Read More

This is delicious which is a good thing considering that I had to make a quadruple recipe after accidentally putting in too much oil! I used almond meal for a little of the flour and coconut oil for the oil. I used half the salt but next time I'll probably leave that out completely. I only made half the amount of crumb topping it called for and that was still plenty. I discovered that sour milk works just fine in this recipe. Next time I might add some grated coconut to the topping. This cake is not as sweet as some and with the smaller amount of topping I think it would make good muffins. Read More

This was so easy and soo soo good! The whole family loved this! I didn't have any vegetable oil on hand so I used 2 tbsps of applesauce instead. Also I didn't use all of the topping mix on my cake because I wasn't sure how it would bake up but I think it was fine with just a light layer (put enough so I didn't see any cake mix/berries peeking through). Also what little cake that was left almost tasted better the next day! Definitely making this one again! Read More

The new home we bought has a mulberry tree planted in the back and of course I needed to make something with the amazing berries it has been producing. This recipe was incredibly simple and tastes just as good as it looks. I followed it to a tee and will definitely be repeating in the future! Read More

Husband LOVED it. I thought it was WAY too sweet. The crumb topping needs more butter to be more crumby I think. If I make this again I will cut the sugar in half at least or maybe just remove the white sugar from the crumb topping. Read More

I made this gluten free for my sister the only change to the recipe I made was I replaced the flour with an equal amount of gf flour. It cooked up great and my sister loved it. I wish I would have remembered to take a picture but it got eaten up too quickly! Read More

My daughter just bought a piece of property with a mulberry tree and has been giving me mulberries. I've never eaten them so when I found this recipe I decided to try it. I followed the recipe exactly no substitutions. My husband and I went back for seconds while the cake was still warm! It was absolutely delicious and as long as this tree produces mulberries I'll be making this lovely little cake?? Read More
