  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp . baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups blueberries


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 tsp . cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter , cold


  • Combine the sugar, shortening, egg, milk, flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Fold in the blueberries.
  • Pour the mixture in a greased 9 x 13 inch pan.
  • Combine the topping ingredients of sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter until crumbly. I like to place it in a blender and pulse it a few times.
  • Sprinkle the topping mixture on top of the cake.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or util a toothpick inserted comes out clean.


*If you use frozen berries your cake mixture will get quite cold and form into a large "ball" when transferring to a pan. Just use a spatula or your hand to push the cake mixture to fill the pan.
*We also found that the cake mixture fits into an 8 in. x 11 in. pan just fine as well. Makes the cake pieces thicker. Just adjust baking time if needed.
