Today the word prompt is … Share.
So funny that this would be the word prompt. My mother-in-law passed away this past April. Not yet a year. One of the things I have is all her journals. Her recipe journals that is.
She loved to listen to her cooking show on the radio each afternoon. I always knew better than to call when Gus Saunders was on. There was no competing for her attention as he was sure to get it!
I have been slowly trying out her various recipes. Sort of like a test before I share them. The next generation is now getting them on recipe cards to try out for themselves. And so, today it is my joy to share the one I tried yesterday.
Melt-In-Your-Mouth Blueberry Cake
2 eggs, separated
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup milk
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon flour
Beat eggs whites until stiff while gradually adding 1/4 cup sugar – set aside.
Cream margarine with vanilla – add sugar and cream well.
Add egg yolks and beat until smooth.
Sift flour and baking powder together and add, alternating with milk, to the creamed mixture.
Fold in egg whites.
Coat the blueberries with 1 tablespoon of flour. I put them in a zip lock sandwich bag to do this. Fold them coated blueberries into the mixture.
Pour into a greased and floured 8″ pan. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes. When cooled, sprinkle with confectionery sugar.
