I received this recipe from a co-worker several years ago. I especially love it during fresh blueberry season, but it is good any time of year. Just be sure that if you use the canned blueberries that it is NOT the blueberry pie filling.
This will be the last crumb cake recipe you'll ever need. It's wonderful. It's my friend Fran's mother's recipe. It's far from low fat and I guess that's what makes it such a delicious cake. Everyone will ask you for the recipe.
This cake was published in the very first edition of the magazine "Southern Lady". It was created as a tribute to the magazine by a lady in Atlanta known as the "Cake Lady". She is truly talented! This is my most favorite cake and the one that's most often requested at my house. I have been making this cake for years and I follow the recipe exactly as it's written. I have never in all those years had this cake turn out soggy. True, it is a MOIST cake, but if made as written, should not be soggy.
I love bundt cakes because they are so easy to serve. I found this recipe on a camping website and adapted it for use in the home kitchen instead of on the camp fire! It comes out great and it will be the easiest pineapple upside down cake you'll ever serve!
This is a sweet and delicious cake. The recipe was on the side of a cake mix box several years ago. I can't remember what it was called back then.
Edited on July 6, 2004: From my own recent and personal experience, try to avoid using store/off brand canned pie filling. They tend to have more of the glaze rather than cherries. The cake won't have as many cherries in it as it would with Comstock or other name brand Pie Filling.
If you like Chocolate, this is the cake for you. This cake is sooooooo rich.. I have to resist making it every week because I'll eat it all. I don't remember where it came from because I've had it for years
I made my daughter's wedding cake using this recipe. It turned out fantastic. The texture is just perfect for a wedding cake -- not too fluffy so it breaks from the weight, but also not overly dense. The flavor, texture and moistness were just right. I made two batches of the batter for a three-tiered wedding cake using 14", 10" and 6" pans that were 3-inches deep. I had enough extra batter for a 9" layer (not a deep pan). This recipe was originally created by Rebecca Sutterby.
