We went to pick some blueberries, they just grow on a little hill right next to the house. We probably picked about 4 cups, the blueberries here are wild and plentiful, extra sweet and tasty too. We wanted to make something out of them, but not muffins. We chose this recipe because I haven’t had it in a long time and Evie really likes it. This is a traditional Newfoundland recipe.
we used about 1 and 1/2cups blueberries
mix together 1/4 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar
add 1 egg and mix then add about 1 to 1 and 1/2 cups of flour, 1 tsp baking powder and mix until combined
add milk (about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup) while mixing so it is thick and creamy like cake batter.
then add the blueberries and fold in
then place in an 8 inch square baking pan and bake at 350F for 35 to 40 minutes until dark golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean
While the cake is baking you can make the brown sugar sauce.
place 2 tbsp butter melted and 2 tbsp flour in a small pot and whisk while heating
Whisk in 1 cup brown sugar (it will be dry and thick)
then add 1 cup of boiling water and 1 tsp vanilla whisking and heating bring to boil and whisk until it thickens to a syrupy brown sauce
Serve the warm sauce drizzled over a piece of the cake
