Blueberry Cake

If you've been on pinterest for more than a minute, you've seen this blueberry cake recipe from Alexandra'sKitchen.  Everyone seems to have in pinned, yet I'd heard no reviews, so....it was time.  I halved the recipe, thus the large bread pan in the picture.  It was really moist, less sweet than the traditional muffin, but refreshing.  I love blueberries, and I'll take them in any form, create a cake-and it's all the best life has to offer, at least until lunch.  It says it serves 6-8, but...come on, who shares cake?
