• Blueberry Pudding Cake

    This is a make in the pan simple cake, but the result is anything but simple. In fact, it went so fast that I didn’t have a chance to snap a photo! So…I had to go looking…

    This cake is absolutely delicious, but this is not my photo. See below for the photo link.

    Cake Ingredients

    2 cups fresh blueberries
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1 1/2 cups flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    3 tablespoons cooking oil
    2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup evaporated milk

    Topping Ingredients

    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 cup boiling water

    Preparation

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    1. Put blueberries in a bowl and squeeze lemon juice over them, stirring very easily to coat. You might even prefer to use your hands, but use gloves if you do not want blue hands!

    2. Butter an 8 x 8 inch cake pan and place berries in it (softly).

    3. Mix all of the rest of the cake ingredients together and then spread over the berries.

    4. Boil water.

    5. Stir into boiling water the sugar and the cornstarch, stirring until well mixed.

    6. Pour over berry mixture.

    7. Bake. Begin checking after 40 minutes, but let it cook until it browns a bit. I served ours warm, with a stiffly beaten whipped cream, but the ice cream in this photo looks wonderful as well.
