Blueberry Cake

Here is a simple and delicious recipe you can try to use up some of the blueberries that you picked this summer.  Great for weekend brunches, when you have overnight guests!

Blueberry Cake

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour  


3 tablespoons white sugar 
1 teaspoon cinnamon 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 

 Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan.
Cream butter or margarine and 1/2 cup sugar until fluffy. Add salt and vanilla. 
Add egg to the sugar mixture; beat until creamy.
Combine 1 1/2 cups flour and baking powder; add other ingredients.
Coat berries with 1 tablespoon flour and add to batter.

Pour into prepared pan. 
 Sprinkle top with remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon.
Bake for 50 minutes, or until cake tests done. 
Here's how mine looked, step-by-step......................
Flour-coated berries

Ready for sugar-cinnamon topping

sugar-cinnamon topping forms a crusty golden top when baked

the smell of this right out of the oven is divine

Yummy--melt in your mouth!!
Let me know if you try this recipe, especially if you add a new variation!!


  1. This looks delicious but we do not bake cakes, it puts too much temptation in front of us. :)

    1. I know---my trick is to bake it, photograph it, then give it away as quickly as possible!!

  2. Too bad computers don't allow us to smell that aroma!

  3. I know...and there is just something about the aroma of cinnamon baking...yumm

  4. I have eaten a lot of blueberry cake lately, but none had cinnamon and sugar on the top--I'll definitely try that the next time.

  5. love the pics.... love the taste even better! :) I picked a good weekend to come home! (well, not like any weekend to come home is ever any other way...!)

  6. I just want to curl up with that cake and some hot coffee, yum that looks so good!
