One Egg Cake with Blueberries

A couple of weeks ago, the Bunny gave me a pound of fresh, handpicked blueberries, which was *muchly* appreciated.  Among eating them straight and also with vanilla ice cream, I made a cake early last week, the recipe out of my mother-in-law’s well-worn _Fanny Farmer Cookbook_, with blueberries.  Between me, the Hubby, Janus Gate, and the Marmot, it didn’t last very long.  🙂

One-Egg Cake with Blueberries

1)   Set the oven at 350 degrees. Butter a pan 8 by 8 inches.

2)   Sift together:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

3)   Cream until light and fluffy:
1/4 cup butter

4)   Beat in gradually:
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg, well beaten

5)   Stir in 1/2 cup of the flour mixture, then:
1/4 cup milk

6)   Stir in another 1/2 cup of the flour and another:
1/4 cup milk

7)   Add the rest of the flour and spoon into the pan.

8 )   Cover with 1/2 to 1 cup whole, fresh blueberries.
Sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar mixed with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, if liked.

9)   Bake about 35-40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let sit five minutes out of the oven.

10)   Cut in squares. Serve warm.

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.

    Oh, thank you! I have a copy of the same cookbook, but hadn’t seen this.

    We went blueberry picking for about an hour last Saturday, and ended up with 10 pints. Gonna have to go back, when the next batch ripens.

    The rain has delayed the growing season out here by a month. Which is very, very good. June was, as usual, an extremely busy month.
