This Blueberry Muffin Cake recipe is great for breakfast or as a delicious snack any time of day. Makes a wonderful hostess gift too.
Have you ever tried making your favorite muffin recipe into a cake? I have this old blueberry muffin cake recipe that you bake in a loaf pan. It's great for guests or for taking to someone because you can eat it for breakfast or as a snack.
One of the first things you need to do is flour your blueberries. This helps the berries a little from sticking together.
A dusting of sugar on the top gives this cake a nice finish.
Here on the side, you can see that the berries did sink a little to the bottom but there is still a nice amount throughout the cake.
I really like the ratio of berries to batter in this recipe. I've been using 2 cups and might consider adding more.
The more the yummier. And since blueberries are so good for you how can you go wrong.
