TWD- Brown Sugar Blueberry Plain Cake

I'll be honest here. I wasn't going to make this week's TWD because it sounded kinda boring. I mean, it says "plain" right in the name! But after reading the handful of rave comments on the P&Q, and remembering that almost EVERY recipe in this book is amazing, I decided to go for it.
This is a very quick cake- it only takes a few minutes to put together. It calls for an 11"x7" pan, which I don't have, so I used a 9"x13". I know that's bigger, but everyone in the P&Q said the blueberries sank, so I thought if the cake was thinner, the blueberries wouldn't sink as much.
This cake is so moist and delicious. The blueberries add the perfect amount of fruity sweetness to it. It tastes like breakfast, but we ate it after dinner. Three-fourths of the pan. It was a hit.
Cindy at Everyday Insanity will have the recipe!


  1. Lovely! I couldn't help but nibble my way through it after dinner as well. Oh, and for breakfast, too.

  2. i agree--this was much more exciting than it sounds! yours looks great.

  3. Thanks for baking along with me this week. I like the thin cake idea, I will make it in a 9x13 next time. Your cake looks yummy. Have a great day.

  4. great idea to use the 13x9" pan - i've never even heard of the 11x7! looks like your blueberries didn't sink much :)
