I spent the morning picking blueberries, and this was a great way to use them. I decided to layer the cake with the blueberries in the middle and mixed the berries with a tablespoon of flour so they wouldn't sink. I put the top layer of cake batter on by dropping large spoonfuls over the blueberries, and smoothed it with an offset spatula. The cake looked beautiful with the ribbon of blue running through it. Moist and not too sweet, this is a five star "Please, make that again!"
Outside of the fact that I am a blueberry fanatic it didn't take much to make me want to try this out. The aroma of this cake is divine. Sort of like a really good blueberry muffin. The taste, (me and my seven member panel, my family) all thought this was wonderful. Moist crumb with a plethora of blueberries. The sweetness was perfect and I served it warm with peach ice cream and the flavors were wonderful! A keeper! I have to admit that if I make it again I'd just fold the brown sugar and all the blueberries in at the end because doing the layers was time consuming and I couldn't tell I'd even done layers since the blueberries sunk to the bottom and by the time I tried spreading the remaining batter over the top it was pretty much blended in anyway. Do make this cake though! It's worth it!
I made this last wk. end for my husband--we 'both enjoyed it very much. I 'love' anything baked in a '13x9' baking pan--for some reason--haha so 'easy' I guess! This was so delicious--also easy! Thank you NurseDi !!!
