Baking Blueberry Cake Badly

The blueberry cake I baked yesterday turned out to be blueberry upside down cake. Me baking badly. Again:)

We have guests arriving in two hours, for the holiday weekend, so this will be our secret. I will tell them that it's a variation of pineapple upside down cake.

Do you want a bite?
Next time I will sugar and flour the darn berries.

I am not sharing the recipe because that makes me terribly nervous to do so on the blog. Yes, I am whacked I know. A friend baked one for us last week and it looked completely different (blueberries were oriented properly) than this one!

The cake pedestal is a recent vintage find from an estate sale just a mile down the road.

Have a safe and happy Fourth of July!

I will be busy with company, garage sales and who knows what but promise to settle down next week and rest with you my blogging friends.

I am linking with the beautiful Debra of Common Ground for the Vintage July Fourth Party.

  13. Okay, you're getting anal about "floating" blueberries! Who cares how it looks if it tastes all world?! I would not have complained- instead I would have asked you to pass the milk. :-)
