Amish Blueberry Cake


This is a basic butter cake, with blueberries added. It's called Amish because it came from an Amish cookbook I purchased at a quilt show, titled "Amish Cooking" and has no title and no editors named. Just another mass produced volume for sale at such venues. Anyway, it is a very easy recipe, and very flexible. Add different fruit, more variety, add some dried cherries or add more blueberries. Swirl some jam in the top, like I did in this picture. I have cooked it in every size and shape pan, and it always comes out great, just watch the timing.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

1/2 c butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
1 cup of blueberries
sugar and cinnamon, mixed for a light sprinkle on top

Cream the butter, and add the sugar and totally mix until creamed again. Add the eggs and half the flour, sifted with the salt and baking powder. Stir, and add the milk. add the rest of the flour mixture and the blueberries, stir just enough to incorporate everything.

Oil and flour a 9 x 13 inch pan. Pour in batter, sprinkle top with a little sugar and cinnamon mix. Bake for about 45 minutes or until top is starting to get golden and a knife or toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
