Best Blueberry Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Karen..

This is an old recipe that I wrote down from somewhere(?) over 20 years ago. Very good for using up fresh blueberries.

The cake was light and moist, but I found the taste of the lemon extract too "chemical"; I would use fresh lemon juice next time. I also thought there was too much sugar and I prefer butter over shortening. I should have spread the blueberries over on top instead of folding them in because they all sank to the bottom.
