My mother recommended I post this recipe as she remembers it from her childhood. I asked her if it had a frosting to go with it and she said it never lasted long enough to be frosted. So enjoy it plain or use your choice of frosting.

What a delcious cake Bunlady. We enjoyed it very much. The texture of this cake was perfect, tender and moist and the flavour was delicious. I used frozen, well drained, small wild blueberries, they worked really well. This cake was a lovely treat. Thanks so much for sharing...Another winner!

I can remember making this exact recipe for my daughters girls club night. The leader liked it so well that she asked for the recipe. I like it! It is a good basic cake recipe. Served unfrosted it is great with coffee or for tea. I"m glad to see it on recipezaar because I lost my copy.

I made this today . I followed the recipe step by step. I baked it at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. It did not cook as a cake.It seemed to have too much sugar or something because it came out like baked sugar and blueberries.The cake texture was missing.
