Do you all know what season it is now? It's BLUEBERRY season! Yeppers, my favourite season of all. I love Blueberry season almost as much as I love Strawberry season, if not a tiny bit more! (A fact I am sure you are all more than aware of by now!)
We planted several blueberry bushes in our garden a few years back and have been adding to them every year. We have a good half a dozen now, and they are very prolific producers, thankfully! Today I decided to make a pudding with some of the berries that I had not made in a very long time.
This is a great old fashioned pudding which is composed of a deliciously moist white cake . . . stogged full of lovely sweet blueberries . . . and then topped with a great old fashioned and 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
