Been wanting to try this recipe from my Yankee Magazine. This is a little trivia that comes with the recipe:

In 1954 a 15-year-old Chicago teen named Renny Powell submitted a blueberry coffee cake
recipe to the Pillsbury $100,000 Recipe & Baking Contest (precursor to today’s Pillsbury Bake-
Off). Renny took second place in the youth division for her creation, named in honor of its powers
with the opposite sex.

Enjoy!
