It's here - it's blueberry season. During the berry season between July and September you can visit blueberry farms in Germany and pick your own straight from the bush. We haven't been to one yet, but it is on our list. Nevertheless, we enjoy seeing the supermarket shelves stocked with it. Blueberries are found in many cake varieties and combining it with red wine was a real winner. If you're looking for a delicious, seasonal, berry cake to impress your guests, then this blueberry red wine cake is perfect.
