From Taste of Home Magazine, August/September 1997. This is called a cake but is not tall and looks more like a danish to me because it is cooked in a 15x10x1-inch pan.

This is a really yummy recipe and I would agree with Juenessa that it's more like a danish than a cake. I think that the lemon juice/peel and the almond extract kick it up in flavor and give it its secret ingredient. I used frozen blueberries, therefore I rolled them around in some flour to help decrease in too much liquid. Thank you Juenessa for a lovely recipe!

My blueberry-loving DH can't get enough of this cake. It has been in my collection for a long time and I could make it once a week without hime getting tired of it, I think! Thanks for posting!

I did it for 10 servings. In a round dish maybe 9 inch or 10 inch. I cooked it for 35 minutes at 350 F. I used only shortening. Maybe the glaze is too sweet (but it's my opinion :) ) Thanks Juenessa :) hahah I changed it to 5 stars. Cause I tasted it yesterday (1 day later) and it's better. It's moist and not too sweet.
