Blueberry Surprise Cake



This month the Cake Slice Bakers cake choices were Black and White Layer Cake, Sour Cream Coffee Cake, Blueberry Surprise Cake, and Zucchini Loaf from Seattle.
Making a selection this month was easy. I simply went with the selection I had ingredients for, and the fact that sometimes budgets just force you to use up ingredients already on hand, which is a good thing. Dinners sometimes go that way for the week, also helping to rotate your ingredients in the pantry. 


I was up early on Father's day  hoping to get this cake done in time before the hubby was up. It didn't work. The aroma of toasted nuts got him out of bed and snooping around in the kitchen. Ignoring him gets him out of the kitchen pretty fast! 


The batter was turned out lovely, and was divided in two, adding the pecans to the top layer. The filling was really delicious, and was perfectly balanced with the lemon and spices.
The cake was devoured before lunch time even came around, everyone loved it. Eating it warm was almost like pie!

That's it, I'm making this one too! It looks amazing and I have the ingredients. Maybe cake for dinner tonight?! I'm sure my son wouldn't complain... my husband on the other hand will just have to get over it ;-)

It turned out great in the springform pan. I had to use a different pan and was wondering how it would look. Glad you all loved it so much. I forgot to add pecans to mine. Not sure how, since they were sitting right there.
