Blueberry Cake | Amazing Healthy Dessert
Blueberry Cake, I personally didn’t grow up eating blueberry cake, but I certainly will be the rest of my life. This cake is moist, fluffy and that touch of tartness from the sweet blueberries makes it the perfect cake. One thing I really like about this cake is it isn’t heavy or dense. It’s the kind of cake that after you eat it you won’t feel like you need a nap.
