This was wonderful! And so easy. My only suggestion is to make sure the blueberries stay at least a 1/4 inch away from the edge, or they side falls apart a bit when you unmold it.

Fabulous. This truly is simple and delicious. I used frozen blueberries. The directions say to pour batter into the pan but mine was too thick to pour so don't let that worry you. It's like a pound cake batter. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag Game.

Nice flavor and easy to make. The cake was even better the second day. I think you really couldn't have too many blueberries in this recipe. It might also be nice to substitute the vanilla for orange extract. Thank you for sharing such a delicious recipe!
