Feel like having a blueberry desert?

The cake that I made for the Michigan-Notre Dame game turned out to be a hit with the crowd. At first it looked like no one was going to go for it but when I left there were only a few squares left. I got compliments from strangers after asking if I made it. So I’m all puffed up now. Here’s the recipe if you’d like to try it:

Blueberry Topping Cake

Cake:
  • 1 Pint blueberries (not the tiny Maine ones)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 2 Tsp baking powder
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • ½ Cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 1 Tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 Cup canola oil

Beat eggs and sugar. Mix in flour and baking powder and milk until smooth. Add oil and vanilla and mix well. Put in a 13” X 9”. Add blueberries and fold in with spatula. Topping goes on next.

Cake Topping:
  • ½ Cup sugar (I used brown which I think is better)
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ Cup flour

Mix ingredients together. It should be crumbly. Sprinkle to cover.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes.
