Yes you can! If you don’t thaw them, you just have to increase the baking time until the cake is done and toothpick inserted is clean. Frozen blueberries may change the color of the batter but the cake itself will still taste delicious!

Can you substitute blueberries with other fruit?

Yes! This is also great with strawberries, apples with cinnamon and sugar, or even rhubarb.
