This amazing slow cooked blueberry cake is nice served chilled or warm. You can either have it as it is or frost it. What about serving this blueberry cake with some whipped cream or buttering the slices? Deciding how to serve this tasty cake is the only difficult thing about it. The rest of the recipe is so easy.
You can either use fresh blueberries or frozen ones in this recipe. If you want to use frozen ones, thaw them on paper towels before you begin to make the cake. The reason why the blueberries are coated in flour before you fold them into the cake batter is to stop them from sinking to the bottom during cooking.
Another tip is when you line the crockpot with parchment paper, you might want to tear a square which is about the right size and push it into the slow cooker. Mark around the edge with a pen and then cut out the outline. Alternatively you can put the paper under the crockpot and draw around it, then cut it one inch smaller than the outline you drew.

This delicious blueberry cake is really tasty. The vanilla and blueberry flavors go together so well and this cake is beautiful served with a cup of coffee in the late morning or afternoon, as a pick-me-up. It is also a nice dessert after dinner, served with some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on the side. If you have a crockpot, why not use it to make crockpot cake recipes? They come out just as well as oven-baked cakes and some people prefer to make them in the crockpot because it is simpler. You just have to mix the ingredients together and pour the resulting batter into your slow cooker, and then it cooks slowly and comes out looking as mouthwatering as the cake in the photo.
