really easy and good. Lear from my mistakes- I put in a few too many blueberries, so ended up with more juice than would thicken- so do not be tempted to stay from the recipe

Love this recipe! I double it and use a 13 x 9 pan. I found it easier to put the pan in the oven and pour the water over top with the pan on the rack. Hard for me to avoid a mess trying to get the full slushy pan into the oven!

My family absolutely loves this! My daughter is coming for a visit in a couple weeks and I promised her and my son that I would make it. And the grandkids if Moms & Dads save them some! Haven’t made it in a while because of illness and was so glad to find it on your website. Thank you!

I have made this recipe many, many times and each time it is a total hit. I'll continue making it with no changes to the recipe since it is perfect the way it was first written!

I have rated this as a 4* recipe. I'd never made it before. My adjustments were using a can of raspberry pie filling since I did not have blueberries available. I'd also made adjustments using 2 tsp. lemon juice to the berry filling and adding 1/4 tsp. salt with the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and sugar). I'd baked 45 minutes, tested cake and baked 5 minutes longer. Thank you for sharing! delowenstein

This is an awesome blueberry dessert - I have made it more times than I can count. I sometimes serve with homemade whipped cream instead of vanilla ice cream. I noticed some people commented their sauce was runny when using frozen blueberries - I've never had that problem - Editor's note states do not thaw the frozen blueberries to avoid discoloring the batter, but I also think that not thawing prevents the runny sauce.

LOVE this dessert when served with vanilla ice cream! I suggest upping the cornstarch amount to at least 2 tbsp (otherwise the sauce is very thin, not really thickened much at all- but I always use frozen blueberries, so maybe that makes the difference?)

My sons LOVE this cake...especially served warm with vanilla ice cream. When fresh blueberries are in season, I stock up so we can make this delicious dessert year-round.
