Dutch Blueberry Cake


Many years ago I bought a little cookbook at the grocery store called 263 recipes in praise of cooking. There are many recipes I have made over the years. This recipe is adapted from Dutch apple cake. It turned out great with the blueberries in place of the apples. I put the addition of apples in red if you wish to try this recipe with apples.
