Apple Blueberry Cake

Many years ago, before I moved to Thailand, I wrote a bunch of recipes in a journal that I've carried with me ever since. The funny thing is, in looking through the book from time to time, some of the recipes I've never made. They must have just sounded good at the time, as many of them still do. I have no idea where I got most of these, so I can't attribute the original source to them.

This is one of those recipes that I don't think I've made before. Apples and blueberries doesn't sound like a natural combination, but they do come together quite nicely in this cake, making it a not-too-sweet treat that would be good for a brunch dessert. I'm very tempted to use a smaller square pan for this recipe, to get a thicker cake.
