Berry Pudding Cake

Berry Pudding Cake  is a quick and simple cake that makes delicious use of fresh summer berries.  When berries were plentiful in the summertime, I baked this tender cake over sweet berries, creating a juicy, cobbler-like dessert.  Raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries were mixed in a light pudding batter and baked.
