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 🙂
This is a delightful coffee cake and a great way to use mulberries if you don’t have a lot. It’s definitely more of a cake than a crisp, so you taste more cake in each bite than fruit. My berries weren’t particularly flavorful, so the sugar topping helped a lot. It reminded me of a blueberry/marrionberry taste once cooked. I will certainly make this again!
