Notes

I got this recipe from Beth Hillson of Gluten Free Makeovers.

This was Recipe #15 in the "Gluten Free Baking with KitchenAid" event.

Beth says, "inspired by a recipe by Dorie Greenspan and a crop of fresh, local blueberries, this magnificent cake is as pretty as it is luscious. I serve it on a glass cake stand with vanilla glaze draping over the crowns of the cake, and a glint of the fruit peeking from the frosting’s edges. When blueberries are not in season, I use frozen blueberries, raspberries, or chocolate chips." If that description doesn't make you grab for your spatula, Beth says, "I've seen grown men cry over a bite of this, but not too many tears or the cake will get soggy!" LOL! I couldn't have said it better myself.

Do yourself a favour and MAKE THIS CAKE. Men, women, and children far and awide agree; it is a stunner, a winner, and not to be missed.
