It's blueberry time. I got some this week at the store and was thinking about muffins, bread, and jam. Then it popped into my head what about a cake? So here is my recipe I made for a blueberry cake with a vanilla butter sauce... Mmmm tasty. Enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Yumaroo, this is a very moist blueberry cake. There's a slight crunch on the top and the vanilla butter sauce is wonderful. Not only will we use the sauce on this recipe, but it can also be added to recipes too. Delish!
