Maine Blueberry Cake

I just made this recipe this weekend and I thought it was good, but not spectacular. The lemon rind is overpowering, so I recommend only doing the juice and / or cutting down on the rind. I also had to cook my cake ~12 minutes longer to ensure done throughout and the amount of sugar / cinnamon mixture to top the cake was a bit much (some didn't melt into the cake and while it looked exactly like the photo, I didn't enjoy the texture / waste). I used 1 pint (~2 cups blueberries) and it was more than enough; I do believe 12 cups is a typo in the recipe and cookbook for the size of cake. Bursting with berry-goodness, I would make again if I'm looking for a decent coffee cake or a quick dessert when blueberries are in season / abundant. I think I would serve as the "traditional" way of after a lobster bake in the summer months / early fall. Enjoy!

I'm a Maine native and grew up on similar recipes. I recommend 2 cups blueberries for this size cake.

Should it be 2 cups blueberries not 12?

Am I reading this correctly? 12 cups of blueberries? I believe this must be typo.

Due to the size of the pan, it's likely 1/2 cup and they simply forgot the slash.
