Not big nutmeg fans here, so should have paid more attention to the review that said to cut it back. A good recipe, but next time I think I will sub cinnamon for the nutmeg and increase the blueberries to 2 cups.

Deliciously wholesome. Not too sweet...which made it perfect for breakfast! I used 1/2tsp nutmeg because I was afraid of adding a whole teaspoon, but it would've been fine with that much, I think. Easy to make and produced a nice moist cake. I'll be using this one often! (I used canned wilderness blueberries and pecans because that's all I had)
