Fresh Blueberry Cake

Summer fruit is one of my favorite things in the world. My parents have a gigantic blueberry bush in their back yard and my mom has been making this Fresh Blueberry Cake for years. I had a craving for it and called my mom for the recipe. She said ” you already have it”. I do? Wha? Turns out, the basic recipe comes from one of our favorite cookbooks, Virginia Hospitality. I think every woman that I know in my mom’s circle of friends owns this cookbook and there are some great recipes in there.

The batter comes together fairly easily. I recommend that you not skip the sifting step. It’s also helpful if you have an adorable helper like I did!

The batter is THICK when you’re ready to pour it in the pan. I mean THICK.

I have a really old pan that was my grandmother’s, but you can use a regular tube pan or bundt pan. The key is to watch it and make sure it’s slightly browned (not just blonde) on the top and that a toothpick comes out clean.

Deliciousness with a sugary crispy crust and a soft buttery inside. You won’t be able to leave it alone!
