    Was all psyched up to make this the other day, and couldn't. In the directions you say to "combine the choice of fruit and the water, but there is no quantity of water listed with the fruit ingredients. Help me please, 'cause I'm dying to try it with a frozen berry mix I have(blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries)!!Thanks.

    Oh wow, this sounds so good. It reminds me of a cake my mom makes called Platz ( German/Mennonite), but you don't cook the fruit, you just put it on fresh. I love coffee cake and this one sounds exceptional. Thank you for the post.(I like the way you so clearly laid out the instructions)

    This sounds like a wonderful coffee cake recipe Dynie! Especially if you can change up your fruit to suit your needs. Do you think you could use canned peaches, apricots, mango etc.?
