The best way to store this cake is definitely by freezing it! It’s so moist and tender that, when left out on the counter, could mold within a few days time.

Simply place in a sealable bag or an airtight container and it should keep in the freezer for about a month or so.

To reheat, take out a piece and place it in the microwave for about 30 seconds. You could also leave this cake out on the counter to thaw rather than reheating it.


  • If you don’t have fresh blueberries, you can use frozen! Just make sure they’re thawed before incorporating into the cake.
  • You can sprinkle the cake with course sugar before baking rather than dusting with powdered sugar after baking.

    1. Hi, Nikita! You can use a vegan egg (we use Just Egg) or you can use an egg replacer like Bob’s Red Mill – just don’t forget to follow the instructions on the package for rehydration.
