Blueberry-Poppy Seed Brunch Cake Recipe
“For baking cobblers and coffee cakes like this easy recipe, I love to have blueberries around all year long," notes Ruth Gruchow of Yorba Linda, California. "They’re easy to freeze and last about a year, so I buy them in season, put 2 cups in quart-size freezer bags and date each bag.”
