"After tasting this cake, guests always ask for a second slice...and the recipe," writes Samantha Jones from her kitchen in Morgantown, West Virginia. "Everyone is surprised when they learn this dessert is so easy to make. I often garnish servings with pear slices instead of peaches."
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
THE AROMA OF gingerbread is what I remember most about my grandmother's kitchen, and it meant dessert would be special.
That was nearly 50 years ago, but whenever I catch a whiff of ginger and cinnamon, I'm back with Grandmother and the happiness I knew.

This is my grandmother's recipe, and the sauce is traditional Cherokee, which has been passed down for generations. It is very versatile and can be used on fry bread, pancakes, waffles and other desserts.
Butter and brown sugar combine to create this yummy sauce that's terrific served warm over cake or ice cream. "This is a family favorite," says Carol Haugen of Fargo, North Dakota. "And it keeps well in a tightly covered jar in the fridge."
