Amish Blueberry Cake

There is just something about the Amish that has captivated my interest. From their modest attire, family values, work ethics and moral beliefs ~ the Amish have such a fascinating way of life. I have always wanted to visit a real Amish community and be able to experience their everyday way of life. For now though, I enjoy reading all that I can about them and trying some of their recipes at home. One thing I have noticed is that these recipes usually call for few, yet simple ingredients. They definitely aren't budget buster recipes but most of what I have tried have definitely been tasty. One such tasty and simple recipe is the one I made for tonight's desert. Blueberries are my favorite fruit and this cake certainly compliments that flavor nicely.
