Blueberry polenta cake

Google: “Polenta is a dish that originated in Northern Italy and is made of coarsely ground yellow cornmeal. It’s super versatile and can be prepared in so many different ways. Polenta and cornmeal are almost exactly the same product, except for one thing: the consistency of the grain. Polenta is much more coarsely ground, which makes the end product less mushy, and it has a little more bite to it than cornmeal. Cornmeal is very finely ground, so it can end up mushy or soupy if you prepare it like polenta.”

“Blueberries can be eaten freshly picked or incorporated into a variety of recipes. They can also be purchased frozen. They have been shown to protect against heart disease and cancer, and can also help maintain bone strength, mental health, and healthful blood pressure. Blueberries has antioxidant effect. “
