Madeline Finnerty’s Blueberry Cake

Madeline Finnerty Blueberry Cake


2 1/2 cup sifted flour
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup milk
1 egg unbeaten
2 cup blueberries


There are no directions for assembling, but I would cream the shortening and the sugar, add the milk and egg and then the dry ingredients.  The baking dish my mother used was a pyrex 9" x 13" pan. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with sugar before baking.
