We look forward to blueberry season in our home. This year, we were up to our knees so I sought the guidance of my southern friend and excellent baker Beth. Here is a recipe from her friend's great-grandmother. When a recipe has been passed around for that long, you know it is good!
cream together 1.5 cups sugar and 1 cup shortening (or half butter half lard).
mix together 4 cups flour, 3 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt
beat 1 egg together with 1 1/3 cups milk
alternate adding flour mixture and milk mixture to the sugar
mix in 1 qt blueberries
bake in a 9x13 pan for 50 min in 350 oven
It is super easy and I promise, it taste even better than it looks!
And this little guy "helped me bake" by having a blast in his chair.
