It's pretty quick to put together and not requiring more than some measuring implements, a spoon and a couple of bowls. Plus it was a huge hit with my husband. It's a "not too sweet" cake, loaded with juicy fruit topped with a crackly, spiced sugar and butter topping.
In a large bowl mix with wooden spoon until blended and creamy:
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup lard or vegetable shortening
1 large egg
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup plus 1 teaspoon milk
2 cups sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 overloaded cup dry blueberries
In a small bowl mix and set aside:
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup sifted flour
2 pinches cardamom
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter cut into pieces, nuked until about half melted and soft
Grease an 8 x 8-inch glass pan
Pour blueberry batter in pan.
With clean fingers, sprinkle on the streusel topping
Bake in 350 F. oven 45 minutes.
You’ll get some melty sugar on a knife or toothpick when tested for doneness but there should be no wet batter when done. Run a knife around the edge when slightly cooled, as the topping does tend to stick to the pan - that makes it much easier to serve.

Mom grew up eating Marionberry everything. When she goes to visit her Dad I think she eats a whole gallon of the Tillimook Marionberry Pie ice cream while she is there. (and if you're ever driving from Portland to Astoria on the Oregon side and see the Marionberry restaurant - stop!. Great elk burgers, fish and chips, salads, and pie.Delete
I bet Paul would love that - he likes blueberries, and unlike me, he doesn't love things to be sweet, sweet, sweet!ReplyDelete
