I first got this recipe from my mom many years ago. I didn't have any blueberry syrup syrup so I used about 1/3 cup of blueberry preserves I had on hand form All fruit brand. I melted it in the microwave for 15 seconds and poured over the cake. This is so easy to make which is great because then you can concentrate on other things, like the grill...lol.
