I can't say it any other way...this cake does melt in your mouth! So delicious! It's a family recipe passed down to me by my grandmother. It may extend beyond that, I'm not sure. I don't have time to snap a picture, but I did want to get this fabulous blueberry recipe out to you as the blueberry season is winding down. Without further ado:
4 eggs, separated
2 c sugar
1 c shortening
2 tsp vanilla
½ tsp salt
3 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
¾ c milk
3 c blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Beat egg whites until stiff, and then fold in ½ c sugar and set aside.
Cream shortening; add salt, vanilla, and the remaining sugar. Add egg yolks and beat until creamy. Add dry ingredients and milk alternately.
Fold in egg whites and blueberries which have been coated with 1 tsp flour.
Turn into greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 45 minutes. Enjoy!
