Another blueberry post

I started this blog with a blueberry post.  Now here is another for you.  As I and my hiking buddies found out yesterday, blueberry season is still in full swing.  So we did an impromptu picking session and ended up with this:

Notice our improvised container (thanks Doris!).

Now with the last batch of blueberries, I only got as far as making some blueberry pancakes.  They were quite delicious.

This time, by popular demand, the blueberries went into a "Chimo Cake".  Recipe is posted below.  The topping really makes the cake!

that looks so good! My mom makes a similar cake, without the blueberries, called Dinette cake - the cake is so soft and the topping is amazing!
