“This recipe is a childhood favorite that my grandma passed to my mom and now I am passing to my own kids! It is quick and easy, and great for summer picnics. Plus, the little ones are fascinated when I tell them the boiling water is the 'mystery' behind the cake. Also great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place blueberries in a deep 8-inch pie pan; drizzle lemon juice over blueberries.
  3. Beat 3/4 cup sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy. Sift flour, baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt together in a bowl. Mix milk, alternating with flour mixture, into creamed butter mixture until batter is just combined. Pour batter over blueberries.
  4. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a bowl until thoroughly mixed; sprinkle over batter. Pour boiling water over sugar mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.

this is quite good. i was looking for a recipe to use the last of my blueberry crop and this fit the bill. the only one thing i would change is to add a bit of cornstarch to the berries before putting in the pan. it is a bit soupy when serving. other than that, no complaints. delicious, quick and easy to make. thanks for the post yogurt4k, i will make again!

This was easy and was a big hit at my spinning group. I wish I read the first review, I didn't protect my oven and it over flowed. Otherwise, I loved it and will make this again.

We really liked this cake. I would say it is more like a cake-like pie. I guess my pan wasn't deep enough because it overflowed. . .thank goodness I had the pan on top of a cookie sheet.
