TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:12 servings

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 package (6 ounces) lemon gelatin
  • 1-1/2 cups boiling water
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • Whipped cream or topping, optional

  • 2. Bake at 350° for 33-38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of cake layer comes out with moist crumbs (cake will set upon cooling). Cool slightly on a wire rack.
