Blueberry Cake

I am not a dessert eater.  I love an oreo, but otherwise, it isn’t my thing…blueberry cake is the exception.  My Mom and Aunts have always made this and it is simply the most delicious thing you will ever eat!



2 cups sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 tsps vanilla
3 cups flour
3 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 tsp sugar & cinnamon & nutmeg
1 box blueberries


1. Mix together sugar and shortening, then add eggs and beat well

2. Add vanilla and mix some more

3. Add dry ingredients and add the milk gradually. Now mix it up even more

7. Bake for 1 hour at 350* and then enjoy!

I promise this cake will become one of your staples.  A hint: use whole milk so the blueberries don’t sink! xo- j
