  1. This recipe is great!!! It is easy to put together and it tast great! My family loved it. It can be used as a dessert or as a coffee cake. My daughter suggested using the recipe as blueberry muffins. I used whole wheat pastry flour, and the cake was fine.
     
  2. I have made this recipe for decades. In fact, this year I made it for my birthday! It is so delicious and always comes out perfect.
     
  3. Easy, easy! Tender buttery cake w/ blueberries. Good eaten warm or at room temperature.
     
  4. THANK YOU for posting this!<br/>This is the ORIGINAL Blueberry Boy Bait recipe from 1954. Teenager Renny Powell of Chicago won the $2000 Junior Division prize for creating it. The contest wasn't called the Pillsbury Bake-Off then; it was the Pillsbury Grand National Recipe and Baking Contest. I used fresh blueberries, and it was wonderful. Update: DON'T try this with any other kind of berry. It doesn't work.

I live in to Jacksonville, FL with my husband, 2 daughters (17 and 11), 4 cats, and 2 dogs. My favorite things to make are cookies/bars and pound cakes. I have had a great time cooking since discovering Recipezaar January 2002. This is a picture of my youngest cat, Lily. She is my sweet sweet little baby.
