Blueberry Boy Bait

Blueberry Boy Bait
I like boys, so, naturally, I think "boy bait" concept is a wonderful thing. If you haven't already seen this recipe featured on Mrs. Deb's fabulous blog, I'm happy to have the pleasure of introducing you to it because it's fantastic! Buttery, sweet and completely addictive, you don't need to be a boy to fall for this stuff!

2 c (285 g) + 1 tsp flour, divided
1 Tbls baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 c (235 g) butter, room temp
1 1/4 c (250 g) sugar
3 eggs, room temp
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c (120 ml) milk
1/2 c (120 ml) yogurt
1 c (240 ml) blueberries, fresh or frozen (if frozen, do not defrost first as it tends to muddle in the batter), divided
1/4 c (50 g) sanding sugar (or granulated sugar)

Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Grease and flour 9" x 13" baking pan.

In a medium bowl, combine two cups flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars until fluffy, about two minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until just incorporated and scraping down bowl. Add vanilla. Reduce speed to medium and beat in one-third of flour mixture until incorporated; beat in milk. Beat in half of remaining flour mixture, then yogurt, and finally remaining flour mixture.

In a small bowl, toss 1/2 c (120 ml) blueberries with remaining one teaspoon flour and, using a rubber spatula, gently fold blueberries into the batter. Spread into prepared pan.

Scatter remaining 1/2 c (120 ml) blueberries over top of batter and sprinkle with 1/4 c sanding sugar. Bake until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool in pan 20 minutes, then turn out and place on serving platter (topping side up). Serve warm or at room temperature.
