At 94 years of age, I don't have the energy to do all the things I once did...but I can still get enthused about whipping up my favorite culinary concoctions! I tend to bake many desserts due to my sweet tooth, and this blueberry crunch cake is one of my personal favorites. —Leon Kingsley, Marshfield, Massachusetts
