1c chopped pecans (optional)
Pour half the batter into a well buttered 8"x12" glass pan, then crumble-spread the berry mixture over that. Pour on the remaining batter, then top with the rest of the berries. Sprinkle some coarse sugar on top, and bake at 375° for 350minutes. Reduce the heat to 350° for an additional 20 minutes. Take out of the oven and cool on a rack, about an hour before serving. This created the most wonderful scent in my kitchen as it baked!
