A few weeks ago, I spotted Heidi’s old-fashioned blueberry cake and decided right away that I had to make it. I’m pretty much a sucker for any recipe with the title “old fashioned” and I loved that it used blueberries and a small amount of natural molasses to sweeten the cake, rather than several cups of refined sugar. I used the molasses we picked up on our trip to Saluda, N.C. The result was similar to a blueberry coffee cake with a very mild sweetness and a bold molasses flavor. I really enjoyed it!
I recommend serving this cake for breakfast or dessert. Serve with a sprinkling of powdered sugar and garnish with mint leaves for color.
