This recipe is from Anne Greene’s book Recipe For A Husband. I’m sharing this recipe of hers with permission and with her blessing. Below is the Recipe. Enjoy. Please let me know how things go and how it turned out if you make it.
NEW ENGLAND BLUEBERRY CAKE
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups fresh New England blueberries
Blend sugar and shortening on medium speed, add milk and eggs. Reduce speed to low. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to mixture. Mix only until all flour has been moistened. Fold in blueberries. Spread batter in greased and floured 9-inch square pan.
1/3 cup sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup soft butter
Combine and blend until crumbly. Sprinkle crumb topping over batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Also makes 2 dozen muffins.
Spread berries on wax paper and sprinkle a little flour over them. This keeps the berries from settling to the bottom of the cake.
