JoAnne Veller, who sent in this recipe for Blueberry Tea Cake calls it “delicioso.” It takes a little effort to make — what homemade cake doesn’t? — but it certainly looks to be worth the time.
Blueberry Tea Cake
1¼ cups sugar, divided
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2¼ cups flour, divided
½ cup (1 stick) butter, divided
2 cups blueberries
½ cup milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375°. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan.
To make the topping, mix together ½ cup of the sugar, cinnamon, and ¼ cup of the flour. Cut in ¼ cup (½ stick) of the butter until the mixture becomes crumbly. Set aside. Wash and dry berries. In a stand mixer, mix together remaining ¾ cup sugar and the remaining ¼ cup (½ stick) butter until light and fluffy. Add the egg and milk, and mix in the remaining 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. Fold in berries, and sprinkle topping on top. Bake 40 minutes.
