This fruity snack cake couldn’t be easier to make. The stir-together batter comes together in one bowl with no need for an electric mixer, and the cake bakes up to a moist, fluffy texture. The two-ingredient glaze finishes the cake with a sunny hit of citrus tang. Feel free to substitute fresh raspberries or blackberries if they’re more plentiful at your market than blueberries. Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to one week.
