“My husband and I grow blueberries for market-and this cake is my favorite way to use them. Our fresh berries are enhanced by the light, citrusy frosting. I bring this beauty to all potlucks." —Shirley M. Cooper, Salemburg, North Carolina
My mother gave me this recipe some 40 years ago, and it's withstood the test of time. The blueberry-filled cake has gone on to please four generations of our growing family. Along with baking, my favorite pastime is quilting.
MY FAMILY loves fresh blueberries just about any way, but this loaf cake is a favorite at breakfast, as a delicious snack or quick dessert.
We always look forward to summer, when fresh blueberries appear in the market.

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.

Living in Maine, I am lucky to have an endless amount of wild blueberries. This recipe's similar to a pineapple upside-down cake. It's easy, light and also great with cranberries. —Nettie Moore, Belfast, Maine
This recipe was a lucky experiment. I was going to make apple pound cake but found I had no apples. So, I used the blueberries and peaches I had on hand. I was a winning combination.—Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, New Jersey
