Made this for Thanksgiving and it was a complete success. It turned out as pretty as the picture and everyone had 3rds.
Fantastic CH, I’m delighted that everyone liked the blueberry cake, Happy Thanksgiving!
The amount is so off. Makes one pancake.
Hi Werner, we’re a little confused by your comment. Did your cake not rise?
Best recipe ever!
This is the first cake I’ve ever made and OMG it is amazing! It’s so light and fluffy, almost like eating a cloud. I made a boo boo and accidentally added the juice of the whole lemon rather than a teaspoon but still turned out fine. Will definitely be making this again :)
A fine choice for your first cake, Vane! Thanks for letting us know how it turned out.
Just made it! So Yummy!
Delicious! I had a small overripe banana that I added to the batter. Added another layer of flavor.
I made it and it tastes so good! I had a bit of a dip in the middle once it cooled down but it didn’t take long to finish it!
I used half of the sugar in the recipe, and it tasted perfect!
I love this recipe. I have made it twice now, once with blueberries & another with mangos. I’m 49 & bake ALL the time, trying new & different recipes often & I’m telling u, this won’t last 1 day if u share it with anyone. If it’s all for u, I give it 2 days. I wish I could load a pic, but I don’t see an option to do that. Smells delish!

Lovely cake, quick, easy and delicious. Perfect for the summer- light and moist. I always make this one when I have some leftover blueberries in the fridge …yummy
Great, Lydia, I’m so glad you liked it!
This was a delicious, simple, and easy-to-make cake! I made it as the recipe states and it turned out very nicely! It was enjoyed by all! I would definitely make this again.
This recipe is quick and easy, the cake is moist and not too sweet. It’s perfect for a tea party. I have one question though can you mix the blueberries with stawberries?
I’m so glad you like the cake, Lisa! I haven’t tried swapping out any of the blueberries with strawberries or other fruit, but I think it’s a great idea. If you make it that way, please let us know how it turns out for you!
good liked it
Very bland for me, probably because the frozen blueberries that I used weren’t very sweet. Since there isn’t much sugar nor cinnamon nor vanilla extract, there really isn’t much flavor other than blueberry. If you don’t have sweet blueberries, skip this recipe or add more sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.
A friend made this cake and it was wonderful. When I tried it, it bombed. It took me forever to realize the directions threw me off. When you listed the amount of flour, you didn’t say what the “plus 1 teaspoon of flour” was for. In the method description, you could have stated that #5 when you toss the flour and 1 t of lemon juice with the berries, THIS IS WHEN YOU USE THAT EXTRA t OF FLOUR. I am going to try it again.
We’re sorry to hear this recipe was not clear for you. In what way did your cake bomb? Did the berries sink to the bottom? I’d guess the single teaspoon of flour not getting mixed into the berries should not be major enough an oversight to marr the entire cake, but if I’m wrong, please tell us!
Can I make this in oblong pan so I can cut into squares?
I don’t see why not. An 8 x 8 inch pan should work nicely. Happy baking!
Will it work mixing by hand?
Yes, you may mix this by hand. It helps for your butter to be nice and pliable, but not greasy-soft. When the butter is too cold, it’s harder to get the batter mixed as smoothly by hand. Happy baking!
It was wonderful covered with homemade whipped cream! I decorated with fresh blueberries and it was delicious!
Oh, I bet it looked stunning Heidi!
It was! I can’t figure out how to attach a picture or I would.
We do love seeing photos of what readers like you make, Heidi! Right now the best way to share those photos with us is to post them on Facebook or Instagram and tag us @SimplyRecipes.
Just made this and Loved it!! Easy to make too. Thanks
This is the easiest, most yummy recipe! I use gluten free flour and it comes out great every time!
Great, Sonja! Thanks for letting us know that the recipe works well with gluten-free flour. May I ask which brand you are using?
King Arthur Flour’s Gluten Free measure for measure flour. You’d never know it was gluten free when I use it.
