This blueberry cake bars recipe is made in a 13x9-inch pan and is as easy as pie, except it isn't pie! The recipe comes to me by way of my friend Diane who got it from her friend Bernie who got it from someone else! It's just a darn-good cake that's simple to make and is perfect for an abundance of blueberries. When Thanksgiving and Christmas roll around, substitute fresh cranberries for the blueberries.

Definitely worth 5 stars! I don't bake very often, but had a pint of blueberries that I wanted to do something with. Easy recipe, plus I had all the ingredients on hand. Mine came out looking exactly like the picture, and it is delicious, my whole family loved it..
