Amazing! I followed the recipe exactly, using frozen blueberries that I did not defrost prior to adding. I was skeptical about the sugar in the pan, afraid the cake would stick or burn, but voila, it came out easily and the sugar made an amazing crunchy crust. I took it to work and got rave reviews, people couldn't believe how moist it was, and that the berries had been frozen. I'll make it again and again and again.

This cake was fantastic!! I was a little worried at first because the batter was rather thick but it turned out soo moist. Instead of using butter to grease the pan, I used nonstick spray and it came out perfect.

Delicious. . . add the juice and rind of one lemon or orange and replace blueberries with cranberries for a nice variation!
