Individual Blueberry Cakes – the perfect quick and easy dessert for a busy weeknight.

These Individual Blueberry Cakes are a great last-minute dessert you can pull together in less than 15 minutes (prep time) on those nights you have unexpected guests – or just want to treat yourself! They call for only 7 ingredients that you are likely to have on hand (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk, butter and, yes, blueberries) and are super easy to prepare, delicious, and elegant – what more could you ask for? If you don’t have fresh blueberries on hand, substitute frozen blueberries that have been thawed and drained. I like to add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream when serving. Enjoy!
