Blueberry Crunch Cake

Deb Crane


This is a recipe I found from 1998, by a 94 year old gentleman named Leon Kingsley,from
Marshfield,Massachusetts. The recipe was posted in a cooking magazine. His passion for cooking included his rich heritage and family traditions.
This recipe is my first "go to" when blueberries are in season.
SO moist and delicious! Easy and made from scratch. Layers of wonderful! Very easy to make, and home made goodness through and through!
