REC: Blueberry Spice Cake -- YUMMMM! The smell and flavor reminded me of
Fall :)

Blueberry Spice Cake

1 pint blueberries
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon powdered cloves and allspice
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 egg, at room temperature
3 tablespoons molasses
1 cup sour milk or buttermilk
1/3 cup confectioners sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Sprinkle berries
with a little flour. Butter and flour a 9x13
x2-inch pan. Sift flour and measure to 2
cups. Resift with baking powder, baking soda,
salt and spices. Cream butter and sugar. Beat
egg until lemon-colored and add to butter
mixture. Beat well. Gradually beat in the
molasses. Alternately add the
butter-egg-molasses mixture and the milk to
the dry ingredients, a little at a time,
beating well after each addition. Gently fold
in the blueberries. Pour into the prepared
pan and bake for about 30 minutes, or until
toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.
Remove and cool cake in the pan on a rack.
Dust with confectioners' sugar. Cut into
squares to serve.Yield: 16 servings.


Pat's notes: I didn't follow the preparation
instructions...I just combined the wet
ingredients in a bowl with a mixer, then
added the dry ingredients and blended with
the mixer another 30 seconds, then added the
blueberries. I only made half the recipe (a
bit of a challenge since it's only one egg,
but do-able) and made it in an 8-inch square
baking dish (only took about 20 minutes to
bake). It smelled so heavenly when it came
out of the oven that I couldn't wait for it
to cool down. Just dusted it with powdered
sugar and sampled it. It's soooo good!!!
