Blueberry Boy Bait

"Delicious coffeecake. Similar to a blueberry buckle yet has its own unique twist. Recipe dates back to the 1920's. Fresh, frozen or canned blueberries may be used, but be sure to drain them first."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour and sugar. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or a fork until pea-sized. Measure out 3/4 cup of the mixture, and set aside. Stir baking powder and salt into the remaining mixture, then mix in the egg yolks and milk using an electric mixer on low speed for 3 minutes.
  3. In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites just until stiff peaks begin to form. Fold egg whites into the batter. Spread batter evenly into the prepared pan. Sprinkle blueberries over the batter, and sprinkle the reserved crumb mixture over the top.
  4. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the cake springs back when lightly touched in the center.

I have made this recipe before and really enjoyed it but tonight I added in a few things that made it phenomenal! First: I added in cinnamon to the flour/sugar/butter mixture (1/2 tsp and could have done more). Second: I used buttermilk. Third: I added in almond extract to the cake batter part (about 1/2 tsp). Fourth: I used more blueberries than called for. It was divine! I did have to cook it a touch longer, could have been due to more blueberries, but I don't mind. It's SO good! Thanks for a great recipe!


This one is headed for the Allrecipes Hall of Fame!!! This was so good. It was easy, didn't have any complicated ingredients (I had everything in my kitchen and it's not even that well stocked at the moment), and tasted so good. We had it with coffee this morning. I made it for Father's Day breakfast. It had a simple, old-fashioned very slight sweetness, not the sickening sweetness of store-bought blueberry muffins, for example. I did as someone suggested and added a little cinnamon to the topping, but I suspect this would have been just as terrific without that addition. This is one of those recipes I'll grab when I need a tasty dessert for a party, potluck, housewarming, or whatever! Infact, my new neighbor is 9 monthes pregnant and I can't wait until she has the baby so I can rush over with some Blueberry Boy Bait and say Congratulations :) :) :) Thanks so much!


This was excellent. Next time I will try a little cinnamon in the 3/4C. saved topping. Maybe a few more berries.
