Can I Use Frozen Blueberries In Cake?

Yes, yes, yes! In fact, this article from Bon Appetit says it’s better to use frozen fruit in cakes. Small, still frozen pieces of fruit work better than non-frozen fruit. Using frozen fruit prevents the possibility of smushing fruit into your batter while mixing. This will eliminate that dreaded red, purple or blue batter.
