  • I am so lucky to be living in the land of bountiful wild blueberries. I decided to make a cake that is very similar to the very popular Pineapple Upside Down Cake. Instead of pineapple, I used Blueberries. This is a very simple cake recipe with blueberries and almonds. The cake is very moist and the blueberries are sweet and tender, an easy recipe perfect for a Sunday Brunch or for a light dessert.
