Blueberry Boy Bait

Adapted from Smitten Kitchen

Serves 12-14


2 cups plus 1 tsp all-purpose flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

16 tbsp (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

3 large eggs

1 cup whole milk

1/2 cup blueberries


Topping:

1/2 cup blueberries

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 9x13 inch baking pan.


2. In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. With an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars on medium-high speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until just incorporated and scraping down bowl.


3. Reduce speed to medium and beat in 1/3 of flour mixture until incorporated; beat in half of milk. Beat in half of remaining flour mixture, then remaining milk, and finally remaining flour mixture.


4. Toss blueberries with remaining 1 tsp flour.


5. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in blueberries, then spread batter into prepared pan.


6. Scatter blueberries over the top of batter. Stir sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl and sprinkle over the batter.


7. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 45-50 minutes. Cool in pan 20 minutes, then turn out and place on a serving platter, topping side up. Serve warm or at room temperature.
