Blueberry Loaf Cake

9F5B0C3B-9AD5-41F1-9D59-5820BB83509B

My two garden blueberry bushes are giving me an abundance of blueberries this year. I thought I would try a new blueberry recipe. Although this looks like bread, it is actually a loaf cake. What a nice touch it was adding the cinnamon sugar topping giving this delicious and moist Blueberry Loaf Cake an extra burst of flavor.

    • Do you put acid on your bushes? Buy a fertilizer that is for blueberries and hydrangeas and follow the directions and I bet next year you will get them. I use Miracid in the growing season and just an acid in the dormant months. In about 25 years of growing the same 2 bushes there was only one year I didn’t get blueberries and that was last year….the flowers were killed off by frost.
