Shenandoah Valley blueberry cake

Hey– Happy Father’s Day!  Why not do something nice for pops and make him a Shenandoah Valley Blueberry Cake today??  It’s super easy, I promise.  You can even make it by hand without breaking a sweat.  I’d make it for my dad, but he lives clear across the county.

This cake is nothing fancy…plain, but soft and good.  It reminds me of a blueberry muffin, which made it perfect for breakfast with a cup of coffee.

Here’s a printable link to the recipe.  Or get your hands on a copy of Southern Cakes by Nancie McDermott.  I made a couple of tiny tweaks…a little spelt flour in place of some of the AP, and a bit of lemon zest for extra flavor.   Cruise through the list of The Cake Slice Bakers to check out all of our blueberry cakes this month!
