Maine produces the very best blueberries—small but so sweet. When I was a little girl, my mother always made this cake in blueberry season. Served with a bit of real whipped cream, it’s the best!

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  2. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg; gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition. Gently fold in blueberries.
  3. Transfer to a greased 9-in. square baking pan; sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool on a wire rack.
