Blueberry Boy Bait
It's blueberry season!! After buying a couple of huge containers of blueberries, I had to start finding some recipes to use them in........and this one uses a whole 2 cups of blueberries......yeah!
According to Sticky Gooey Creamy Chewy, this is based on a recipe from the 50's that was entered in a Pillsbury baking competition. The baker that submitted it claimed that one bite of this cake and the boys were hooked. Well, I gotta say the hubby loved these!
One goof-up I made in this one (and it's a pretty easy recipe, so I feel kind of silly).......I forgot to toss the blueberries with flour before folding them into the batter. Because of that, most of my blueberries sank to the bottom while the cake was baking. If I had remembered to do that step (my fault for trying to get this in the oven and get the boy's dinner on the table at the same time), then the blueberries would have been scattered throughout the cake, instead of being primarily on the bottom. Oh well......at least the cake still tasted fantastic.....moist, buttery.....and with a yummy sugar-cinnamon topping.
The hubby and I had this for dessert last night.....fantastic with a little whipped cream! Today I had a piece with my afternoon coffee.....a perfect pick-me-up!!
Check out Sticky Gooey Creamy Chewy for the recipe.......Enjoy!!
