Reviews forBlueberry Snack Cake
"I made this recipe 9/17/14 and I did make adjustments to this recipe by adding 1 tsp.of salt, 1-1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg to the flour and baking powder.I sifted the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together. I then added the sugar to sifted dry ingredients. I used a pastry blender to cut in the cubed butter. I did use 1 cup of crumbs for the topping and used a greased and floured 13x9x2" baking pan. I bakedthe cake at 40 minutes baking time to allow the cake to FULLY bake! It tested done with a cake tester after the 40 minutes baking time was up. I'd used whole milk this time and did not sour it! Using soured milk or buttermilk does work well for me, though! Thank you, JillEvely, for sharing this recipe with Taste of Home! This recipe was very simple to prepare and I have printed it out so that I have it accessible to make again! This cake IS a GREAT way to use blueberries and I had the blueberries available! I also added 1 tsp. of lemon extract to the batter! delowenstein"
"This is one of our favorites. It has a great flavor and is moist. We like to keep it in the fridge and eat it cold."
"I substituted buttermilk for the regular milk, and we all enjoyed it. Will be making this one again!"
"I have been making this recipe for years and everyone loves it. This year for an early 4th of July party I picked raspberries from my garden and put them in with the blueberries-it came out more pink & purple than red, white and blue-but it was still festive, delicious & gone in a flash. Can't go wrong with fresh or frozen berries and I always have the ingredients on hand which makes this a snap. I take about a cup of the cake mix out for the topping-it's a keeper."
"Used our freshly picked blueberries & this was perfect. As others have posted, warm & fresh from the oven is the best part! Although I am still liking it the next day. Very moist. Also agree that the topping is not streusel-crunchy, but still works."
"This cake is delicious! Light and not too sweet - perfect for summer! Definately a keeper."
"Not half bad really - the topping was not struessely like I thought it should be, but still very yummy! I liked the fact that it didn't have any odd ingredients - extremely easy to make! I will only make when I am having company, though, because it is does not store very well. Perfect right out of the oven, not so perfect 2 days later! haha"
"I LOVE THIS RECIPE!!!!!!!!!!"
"I made this recipe about 2 months agowith local blueberries, andit was good warm and cold. excellent recipe!"
"I really love this recipes. But I am not a big fan of blueberry's so I changed the fruit I used. I tried it with raspberrys, strawberry's and peaches all were fantastic."
