My Blueberry Cake

I recently tried a new recipe. It's called Blueberry cake and I found it in my At Home with Madame Chic book. I just had to try it and it was delicious! If you missed my entry for Apple Cinnamon Tea Cake see here. The ingredients are below. Enjoy!

Blueberry Cake

1/2 cup butter, room temperature

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 egg yolks

1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/3 cup milk

1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries

2 egg whites

1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8-inch baking pan. Cream the butter and 1/2 cup of sugar. Add vanilla and salt. Separate the eggs and reserve the whites. Add yolks to the sugar mixture and beat until creamy. Combine 1 1/2 cups of flour and baking powder and add it alternately with the milk to the egg-yolk mixture. Coat the berries with 1 tablespoon of flour (this prevents them from sinking to the bottom of the cake) and add them to the batter. Mix with a spoon to avoid breaking up the berries. In a different bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/4 cup of sugar and keep beating until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the main batter. Pour into your prepared pan. Sprinkle the top with the last tablespoon of sugar. Bake for 50 minutes or until the cake is set.
