How to Make Blueberry Cake (Esther Lund)

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a bowl, mix egg, sugar, shortening, and molasses.
    In another bowl, dissolve baking soda into hot water; add salt and mix well. Add to the sugar mixture.
  • 2Toss the blueberries in a few teaspoons of the flour; this will help them float in the batter.
  • 3Add flour to the mixture (not sifted; a little more flour may be added to thicken to cake consistency). Fold the berries coated with flour into the cake mixture.
  • 4Grease or spray a 9x12 inch baking pan, fill pan with cake batter. Bake at 350 degrees until firm in the middle, about 40 minutes. Sifted powdered sugar may be dusted on top.
  • 5This would also be good with a cream cheese frosting and chopped walnuts sprinkled on top.
