Hi LDJ Wanting to make this cake. Have blueberries from last summer and a fresh lemon from my dad's garden. Favorite flavor combo. But what do I do with the Blueberries? I'm going to put them at the bottom and pour the batter over the top. I'll let you know how they come out. My blueberries are no-cook freezer jam with no sugar added. They do have pectin. So we'll see. Update after making. Delightful. Lemony sauce over the blueberries with a light chiffon cake on top. Judy in WA
