I’m clearing out a few cookbooks, and found a delightful late 1950′s community cookbook “Compiled by the Home Bureau Women of Jersey County” with a vinyl cover and held with metal rings. There is a terrific easy bread and roll section. I’d never heard of this recipe, though it seems like a version of Blueberry Buckle, which I love. My Dad was a big blueberry lover, and my boys seem to have inherited this even with adoption!
Have you had anything like this?
Blueberry Boy – Bait? (Does that mean it tempts everyone to come eat it?)
2 cups sifted flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup butter
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 cup blueberries
Sift flour and sugar, cut in butter. Measure 3/4 cup of this mixture and save for top. Add baking powder, salt, 2 egg yolks and milk to remaining crumb mixture. Beat 3 minutes. Beat egg whites until stiff, fold gently into batter. Arrange blueberries over batter. Sprinkle reserved crumbs on top. Bake 350F for 40 – 50 minutes. Serve warm or cold with whipped cream.
The instruction that seems to be missing is: Eat in one sitting.
