I rarely make comments on recipes, but this was so good! I think I'm going to make it my go-to special occasion recipe. Everyone that tried a piece said, "You could sell this!" I'd like to try it with diced apples sometime.

This was pretty good - we added lemon zest to the cake to help bring out the blueberry flavor and used one 8 oz bag of thawed frozen blueberries instead of fresh. Batter was much thicker that I expected. Streusel topping was salty - would recommend omitting the salt in it next time.

This is my family's favorite cake-- I have been making this for years. My son has requested this (again) for his 7th birthday next month.

I made this for the first time this weekend. It turned out really good but definitely isn't complete without a scoop of ice cream (vegan or otherwise) on the side! We also found that it tasted better after being in the fridge a day or two. I agree with veghead that it doesn't look like the picture; it actually came out looking better. I'd definitely make it again. - 2010-01-20 09:27:26

This recipe was really good, I would make it again. It doesn't look like the picture though.
