Blueberry Snack Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MarthaStewartWanabe

When I lived at home with my family, we would make this snack cake a lot. We always had blueberries stored in the freezer from summer berry-picking season. This recipe is very sweet but well worth the carbs! Please note this cake batter spreads out thin and does not rise much at all once baked. It is not meant to do so. Also, please note that the glaze is optional per your sweet tooth preference. It could also be halved for those who prefer less sweetness.

This didn't really work too well for me. Made it exactly by the recipe, and as I was making it I'm thinking to myself, "This doesn't look like enough batter." It barely covered the bottom of the baking pan and subsequently came out very flat. My baking powder is fresh, so that's not the problem. Also, it was waaaaay too sweet for my tastes, and I love sweets. Wish I'd had better results. Made for My-3-Chefs 2008.
