I love this cake! I love the combination of the spice cake with fruit in it. And what better fruit than blueberries! This recipe came from the cookbook The Best of Mennonite Fellowship Meals.

I made this yesterday for a brunch I was hosting. I used blackberries instead of blueberries and it was delicious. I received many compliments from my guests.

LOVED this! I sifted the flour but then just dumped all the ingredients together (not very patient here). I didn't have molasses so I subbed honey, and I used skim milk instead of buttermilk. Otherwise no changes and MAN is this GOOD!! Will be freezing in single-serving sizes (18 slices). Thanks for sharing!

My husband ADORES spice cake, cookies, - you name it, so I thought this would be a hit - and it is! I couldn't use fresh blueberries, (my uncooperative grocery store didn't have any when I decided to make this) so I bought frozen which worked just fine. Another for my collection - thanks!
