Blueberry Butter Cake

This is an untried recipe that was recently discovered by my daughter in a book she was reading called "Escaping into the Open - The Art of Writing True" by Elizabeth Berg. The author says that it comes from the Black Dog Cafe on Martha's Vineyard. She's that you better plan on making it to take somewhere and share. She says, "You don't want any leftovers, because you will suck them down in the car on the way home."

Blueberry Butter Cake

1 cup sugar
1tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 3/4 cups flour
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup melted butter
1 tbsp pure vanilla
3 cups blueberries

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cold butter in bits

Sift together the dry ingredients and in a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients. Then add the wet to the dry and mix until blended. Pour the mixture into a greased and floured 9 X 13 inch pan. Sprinkle with blueberries. In a separate bowl, with your hands, crumble together sugar, flour, butter and cinnamon for the topping. Sprinkle the topping evenly. Bake at 350 degrees until knife comes out clean, approximately 50 minutes. Serves 8 - 10.

If we become ambitious and make this, we'll post a review and perhaps a picture.
