Blueberry Ring Cake

    1 hour 30 minutes

    The batter for this cake will seem a little thick but it comes out moist and delicious. You can always substitute frozen blueberries if you can't find fresh.

    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.  -  25 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  23 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Delicious. . . add the juice and rind of one lemon or orange and replace blueberries with cranberries for a nice variation!  -  26 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
