Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

"I skipped the lemon sauce, and the cake is still delicious! The flavor of the blueberries really comes through. I would add grated lemon rind and a little lemon juice to the cake next time if not using the sauce."
