It's blueberry season in New Jersey which means it's the perfect time to make this Blueberry Sour Cream Cake. Preferably with local blueberries, or even better with a batch you picked yourself from one of New Jersey's many "pick your own" farms.

Blueberries are so refreshing and Susan Dormont of Manalapan came up with a great way to enjoy the freshness of blueberries in a satisfying dessert. When I tasted this very tasty dish it had a great balance of flavors and the dish was surprisingly lighter than I expected.

You'll definitely want to give this one a try. When you take a bite you'll be reminded of how lucky we are to live in the great Garden State. Nice job Susan and thanks for the recipe!
