Fabulous and Delicious Blueberry Buttermilk Cake, Member barbaramintz

This cake was so moist, delicious and tasted great. I will be making this when the gals come to play mah-jongg. It was so easy and took very little time to throw together. I bought fresh blueberries at Trader Joe's as well as their buttermilk (both inexpensive). This little cake is a winner as far as I am concerned. I served with whipped cream -- yum, yum!!
