My mother has been making this cake for over 40 years and it is always a crowd pleaser! The ingredients are from the original recipe. I have had good success with substituting Splenda® for half the sugar and using egg whites instead of the whole eggs. Frost, if desired. I use vanilla frosting and dust with cinnamon-sugar.

I halved this recipe and baked it in a 9 inch round cake pan. The result was very pretty. The cake is full of blueberries with a subtle hint of cinnamon. Nice and moist too. I made a crumb topping for it using brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter. Terrific! Thanks AuntieJ

No creaming, no adding ingredients one by one, no alternating ingredients. Basically dump everything in a bowl and mix. How easy is that? Great cake – moist, pleasantly spiced with cinnamon, with no shortage of blueberries for sure. I made this as cupcakes, then piped each with a small rosette of lemon cream cheese frosting: 1/2 c. butter, 2 oz. softened cream cheese, 2-1/2 c. powdered sugar, some fresh lemon zest and enough milk or cream to achieve desired consistency. Very nice recipe.

Awesome recipe. I substituted butter for shortening (the same amount) and instead of sour cream, I used 1 cup of vanilla yogurt. If you plan on doubling the recipe, I suggest baking it on 325 instead of 350, as it is a denser cake. Will definitely be making this again! and again and again and again :)
