Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or spray a 13x9 inch pan. (If using a dark coated pan, set the oven to 325 degrees F.)

In a large bowl, mix all the cake ingredients (except for the fruit and the brown sugar) on medium to medium-high speed with an elecric mixer for about a minute or so until well mixed. The batter will be thick.

Gently fold in 1-2 cups of the frozen berries into the batter. If you prefer lots of berries, use 2 cups.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly.

Sprinkle another 1 cup frozen mixed berries over the cake evenly, then sprinkle brown sugar over the berries and bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 40-45 minutes. (If using a dark coated pan and baking at 325 F.

Remove the cake from the oven and cool for at least 15-20 minutes before cutting and serving. Feel free to top with a simple glaze, whipped cream or leave plain.
