This is the recipe that my Grandmother handed down to me. I always make it during blueberry season. My guests just love it! Because I grow blueberries I m always on the hunt for a good blueberry recipe and this one is very good. This makes a wonderful blueberry cake that has wonderful flavor and texture.
