This cake is moist, fine textured, and absolutely delicious! I used frozen blueberries that were individually frozen. I did not thaw them. This made the whites difficult to fold in, but it turned out great! Thanks for sharing this!

WOW, made a tripple portion early this morning to bring to work, --- kids always said Danes were crazy, they spend all day cooking for their own B-day. Brought it in at 8:30 and by 12 it was all gone. Thanks, this will be a again and again recipe.
