Coconut Blueberry Cake

My husband and I pick wild blueberries every summer and store plenty of them in the freezer. That way, we can enjoy this delicious coffee cake and other favorite blueberry treats all year long. -Janis Plourde Smooth Rock Falls, Ontario

    Way too much baking soda! It tasted too bitter from the 3 tsp. No thank you.

    Super delicious and moist. Substituted blackberries for half the blueberries. Had no lemons, so substituted tangerine zest and juice, and also pineapple juice and a little fruit on top. Btw, baking took 10 mins extra.

    I skipped the lemon sauce, and the cake is still delicious! The flavor of the blueberries really comes through. I would add grated lemon rind and a little lemon juice to the cake next time if not using the sauce.
