Do you know how much I love blueberries? If you've been reading my blog for any time at all now, you will know it is an awful lot. We have our own bushes in the garden . . . a good half dozen now, and they are great producers . . . but of course they aren't producing this time of year. I do have quite a few frozen however, which is never a bad thing! ☺
I used some of them today to make an old favourite of mine . . . blueberry cake with a brown sugar sauce. It's a very old recipe and very old fashioned. I love these types of recipes. There is nothing fancy or artificial here. This is the same type of recipe that your grandmother would have cooked for the family.
This dessert is composed of a fabulously moist white cake . . . stogged full of lovely sweet blueberries . . . served warm and topped with a wonderfully simple brown sugar sauce.
Desserts don't have to be complicated to taste good. They just have to taste good. This is simple. It's just cake and sauce.
But what a cake . . . and what a sauce! A picture speaks a thousand words they say . . . so what are these photos saying to you???
Well, what are you waiting for . . . grab some blueberries and get baking!
*Blueberry Cake with a Brown Sugar Sauce*Makes one 9-inch square cake
For the sauce:
While the cake is baking make the sauce.
Whisk the sugar, flour and salt together in a saucepan. Add the boiling water, whisking constantly. Continue to whisk, cooking over low hear until thickened nicely. Whisk in the butter and vanilla. Serve warm and spooned over squares of the warm blueberry cake
