There’s nothing like a yummy, warm dessert to brighten those cold days of winter! The below picture is a blueberry gingerbread cake warm from the oven with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. My mom makes this recipe in an 9 inch square pan but this version was made in an 8 inch cake pan to look more like a traditional cake. Either way, it’s a great way to use your frozen blueberries.
