Blueberry Pound Cake

 Blueberry Pound Cake
My husband and I have blueberry bushes in our backyard, so I developed this dessert using a basic pound cake recipe from my great-aunt. I pick and freeze the berries in 3-cup portions so I can make this yummy cake all year long. -Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, New Jersey
