Everyone loves this moist, golden cake bursting with blueberries and drizzled with fruity sauce. You'll have a hard time deciding whether to serve it for dessert, breakfast or brunch. —Alice Tesch, Watertown, Wisconsin

"This is a comment - With all the wonderful ingredients why the poor reviews? I really would like to try this but would like to know what kind of lemonade to use - homemade or store bought?

I am rating this as a 3 because I haven't made it but it sounds good.
Thank you.

"The blueberries worked well, but the cake itself was rather flavorless and somewhat dry. It definitely needed the sauce. I doubt if I'd try this one 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."
