I love blueberries and have many recipes calling for them. One of my favorites is this quick dessert. I always freeze blueberries when they are in season so we can enjoy the summery flavor of this moist, tender cake all through the year. -Jill Evely, Wilmore, Kentucky

This is one of our favorites. It has a great flavor and is moist. We like to keep it in the fridge and eat it cold.

I substituted buttermilk for the regular milk, and we all enjoyed it. Will be making this one again!

I make this cake frequently, and my daughter, who is not a blueberry lover, requested it for her birthday!!

I have been making this recipe for years and everyone loves it. This year for an early 4th of July party I picked raspberries from my garden and put them in with the blueberries-it came out more pink & purple than red, white and blue-but it was still festive, delicious & gone in a flash. Can't go wrong with fresh or frozen berries and I always have the ingredients on hand which makes this a snap. I take about a cup of the cake mix out for the topping-it's a keeper.

Used our freshly picked blueberries & this was perfect. As others have posted, warm & fresh from the oven is the best part! Although I am still liking it the next day. Very moist. Also agree that the topping is not streusel-crunchy, but still works.
