Try It Tuesday: Blueberry Sour Cream Cake

With the end of summer looming uncomfortably close, I thought today would be the perfect time to encourage you to indulge in a light, summery dessert. From the name, one might think it would be heavy but it’s not! Mommy Janks has made this a few times this summer and it always gets rave reviews.
