This sweet, buttery bread with a biscuitlike texture is delicately spiced. Use fresh blueberries, if possible, but if you only have frozen berries, stir them into the batter without thawing them.

Recipe in magazine says bake for 1 hour.  Recipe on line states 2 - 2/12 hours. BIG difference.  Which is correct??

I really enjoyed this cake, but it didn't cook evenly in the slow cooker, burnt edges. Will have to spread it out more evenly next time. Can this be done in the oven too (to save time?)

We really enjoyed this recipe. It is certainly a heavy dessert so smaller portions are suggested. I have made this 3 times and have increased my pecans to 1 cup and the blueberries to 1-1/2 cups and I coated them in sugar rather than flour. I also sprinkled some brown sugar on the top after I poured the maple and butter on top of the pecans.
