Reviews for Maine Blueberry Cake
"It was easy to assemble and looked beautiful. I must have done something wrong because it is soooo dry. It looks dry. :("
"I absolutely LOVED this cake! Moist, incredibly good and very delicious, every mouthful was a delight and very much enjoyed!I didn't use the 1 tablespoon of sugar to sprinkle on the top of the cake since I found it to be sweet enough without it and used regular sized blueberries instead of the smaller ones; it turned out deliciously well!I will definitely be making this one again!"
