Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Place butter or margarine in 9-inch-by-13-inch cake pan and place in oven until butter is melted.

In a medium saucepan, combine 1/2 cup sugar and berries and, if needed, water. Heat to boiling.

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder and milk. Pour the batter into cake pan over melted butter. Pour berry mixture over the batter.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Cook's notes: For a less buttery dish, use 1/2 stick butter or margarine. You can also substitute raspberries for blueberries or mix the berries.
