This came out excellent! My husband said don't wait another month before making it again.
Didn't like this very much. The cake just didn't have a lot of flavor, the blueberries were good and so was the sauce. Would not make again.
Just made this and it turned out excellent!!! I did substitute the 1 1/2 c butter with 1 cup margarine and 1/2 c applesauce. It was moist and delicious!! I also baked it for 55 minutes and my pan is a heavy, dark pan. Also, I didn't have cake flour on hand so I used the substitution method of taking 1 c flour, removing 2 T of it and adding 2 T cornstarch and sifting them together. Will DEFINITELY make again!!!
What a horror! After baking for 1 hour and 20 minutes, the batter stayed wet. This recipe needs to be revised or removed.
