    Beautiful! This cake was made for a charity tea party I have made it 2 years in a row now and everyone asked for the recipe. This was lovely and moist with just the right amount of sweetness. A firm family favorite in our house.  -  24 Sep 2013

    This was very good and very easy. I used frozen blueberries, which turned out great and actually made the mixing easier since the batter is so sticky.  -  21 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
