Blueberry and Buttermilk Cake

A perfectly delectable cake. This recipe originated initially from a bundt recipe which I have trialed and tested various times, and revised to my taste.

Exciting variation of history exists about Bundt cakes from Wikipedia.  I have to admit, it is always great to find out more about the cakes I so loving bake, serve and consume! 🙂

I do not own a bundt mould or tin hence have used my aluminium chiffon cake tin instead.
