"I had actually prepared this recipe in 1998 when what was then Quick Cooking had come into being! I made it again 7/24/15! I DID make adjustments to this recipe: used 1/2 tsp. each ground nutmeg and cinnamon in the dry ingredients and 1/2 tsp. salt with dry ingredients which I'd sifted together. I soured the milk for more moistness with 1 Tbsp. white distilled vinegar. I also used 1-1/2 tsp. bottled grated orange peel! I added 1/8 cup all-purpose flour to the blueberries and baked the cake in a 12x8" greased and floured baking pan for 40 minutes. I'd added 1/2 tsp, each ground cinnamon and nutmeg to the crumb mixture for the top which I'd sprinkled over the top! This time, I'd added the blueberries to the batter with the 1/8 cup all-purpose flour! I was pleased with the results! This is a keeper recipe and so simple to put together! Thank you for sharing your recipe!

"I love this recipe. It was really easy, not too sweet, and it lasts. I thought it might be snoggy the next day, but no. The topping was still crunchy, and the cake bottom was still as if I just took it out of the oven. I added a little more blueberry's as I had 2 pints. You can never have too much. I will deffinately make this again and again."

"I don't know how my rating showed us as three stars, because I am positive that I clicked 5 stars. I just wanted to let you know that this is a 5 star recipe!"

"I have never particulary cared for blueberries, but my husband loves them so I decided to fix this recipe. I was surprised at how much I loved them! I was a little skeptical when I read nutmeg as an ingredient because it is often overpowering, but these bars had such an incredible flavor, I would not change the recipe one bit! I loved it and will definitely fix this recipe again, maybe next time for company."
