Blueberry-Citrus Cake

I decided yesterday that I hadn’t experimented enough with this whole “Roasting” blueberries thing. I am addicted, and while I love fresh blueberries in everything, roasting them gives more depth and flavor to desserts. You could put these in Ice Cream, as a topping for cake (which I did), in a cake or loaf (which I did), honestly you could just eat them straight up but that might be too much goodness in one go.

So I made a cake/loaf yesterday and it came out wonderful. I threw some of the Blueberries into the mix and also topped the finished product with warmed Blueberries and I just couldn’t get enough.

Of course I then cut it up and packaged it to give away, because seriously who can afford to eat an entire cake? 🙂

I hope you guys enjoy this recipe and try it out with other fruits such as Raspberries, Blackberries even apricots…… (good idea)
