What a great moist cake!!! I only made 1/2 of the recipe and used my 2 mini-pound cake pans. I didn't divide it too evenly though, as you can see from the two photo's. I made one as written minus the nuts for my family and then one for me with the pecans, but did run short on the berries for the top layer. But the looks didn't matter, it was the taste!! Great for a morning breakfast. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for PRMR Tag Game.

What a great, moist cake. I increased the blueberry mixture as follows: 2c blueberries, 1/2c sugar, and 3 tbs flour. I also used almonds instead of blueberries. It was fabulous! My daughter reported it was the "Best cake she ever put in her mouth"...I would definately make this again, I would check it after 45min.
