Tips Tricks and FAQs

* If you find your blueberries sinking to the bottom of your batter, coat them in flour prior to adding them to the batter. This helps prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the pound cake. 
* Feel free to use frozen blueberries. If you do, be sure that you thaw them prior to adding them to the batter. 
* If you don’t want your cake to turn a tint of blue, you want to make sure you gently fold in the blueberries. You do not want to use a mixer after the addition of the blueberries. 
* Use loaf pans. If you use a bundt pan it will get stuck on the sides.
