Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

Dutch Blueberry Cake*

To pacify my craving for a blueberry SOMEthing,
I made this snack cake!

Blueberry season is almost here... BUT!!!, I was
disappointed to find out the"closest to here" U-Pick 
blueberry farm will NOT be having any U-Pick
blueberries this year!  You can read why at:
As stated, ONLY "already picked" blueberries can be 
ordered ahead of time and will cost $20 per 5-qt.  pail.


For The Cake...
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • .......
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • .......
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • .......
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries, or well-drained frozen/thawed.
For The Topping...
  • 1/4 cup butter, slightly softened
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Grease and flour (or spray) a 9x9-inch baking dish.
  • Cream together the sugar, oil and egg until lemon-colored.
  • Stir in milk.
  • Sift together flour, salt, baking powder and very gently stir into the creamed mixture, just until incorporated.
  • Gently fold in the blueberries.
  • Spread batter into a greased and floured 9"x9" square baking dish.
  • For the topping:  Cut the butter into the flour/sugar/cinnamon mixture.  Mix well and sprinkle over the top.  (I did this in my food processor.)
Below:  This is how it looked before baking...

In pre-heated 375-degree oven, bake for about 45 
minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

And, later, looked like this!
YUMM-O!  (We added a ball of ice cream to this!)

without a picture, I was pleasantly surprised to see how the 
finished product turned out!
