TwD - Blueberry Brown Sugar Cake



Don't you love it when something simple ends up being something special?  So it was with this week's Tuesday with Dorie pick by Cindy of Everyday Insanity, who chose Dorie's Blueberry Brown Sugar Cake.

This cake was a snap to put together, and has a lovely caramel flavour from brown sugar combined with the lusciousness of blueberries. It is quick and easy to make, and is simply dusted with icing sugar to sreve.  Perfect!

To see what the other TWD bakers thought of this cake, visit the LYL section of the TWD website - and visit Cindy, our host, for the recipe.

Yum yum yum! I love baked goods with blueberries. And I love really simple cakes. I always used to spend July 4th with my grandparents in Arkansas and they had a local source for amazing blueberries. My grandparents are the ones who got me started on local/seasonal food.

Oh, so that's what it's supposed to look like! Yum! I substituted just about everything, but still loved it.

Looks delicious! I keep forgetting to sprinkle mine with powdered sugar -- it's just too good.

I am always drooling when I see blueberry cakes. They are difficult to find here in Athens and when we do they are quite expensive so I don't buy them. The cake looks amazing,

Just the sound of "blueberry brown sugar cake" sounds amazing. Seems like blueberries are all the rage at the moment, everyone is making blueberry cakes. Now I have to make one too LOL

Very special indeed...I think I need to go back and make this again and add some more powdered sugar to it as that looks really extra-special! We loved the brown sugar in this, going to make it again soon with all these wonderful blueberries right now. Not that you would know about that where you are right now, right? Your cake looks lovely.

I did like the caramel flavor with the tart little blueberries. Easy little snack cake.

Yum on the powdered sugar! Dorie really excels on the "simple and special" variety of recipe, this was definitely one of them.
