Note: I’ve made this cake so many times. My husband, who is from New Hampshire, always requests it. When blueberry season rolls around, I get myself to the store for some buttermilk to make this delectable cake. I've had this recipe for about 40 years. It's never failed me yet.

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream the butter until light, then add sugar and continue creaming until fluffy. beat in egg.
  2. Mix flour and soda and add alternately with the sour milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. The batter will be very stiff but it MUST be to support the load of blueberries now to be added.
  3. Pat blueberries dry on paper toweling and stir into the batter. Spread batter in a well greased 9 x 9 inch baking pan. Bake in a moderately slow (325) oven 45 to 50 minutes or until cake is nicely browned on top and has pulled from sides of pan. Or until, as the old recipe says, “The cake begins to smell good.” Cool cake upright in its pan on a wire rack to room temperature before cutting. Makes one 9 x 9 inch loaf cake.
