I added about a teaspoon of fresh grated lemon zest, and it really brightened the blueberry flavor of this cake, without turning it lemony. That one little tweak makes an amazing difference.
This is delicious. The cake itself is so moist with a great understated sweetness. Without the glaze, it tastes more like a bread. The glaze pushes it over into a sweet cake land. Yummy. i did use soy milk and frozen blueberries. i'm definitely making this again!! Thanks for the recipe!!
Unfortunately my cake did not turned out as hoped for, simply because of too much oil, the dough was soaking wet with oil, taste wise okay, but if I'd decide to do this recepy again I'd reduce the oil to maybe 1/3 to 1/2 cup the most!
