I don't think Diane will mind my sharing this recipe with you...so here goes:
Cream together 3/4 cup sugar with 1/4 cup butter
Mix together one egg, 1/2 cup milk (or buttermilk...which is what I used because I had some left over in my fridge that needed to be used), and 1/2 tsp. almond extract.
Sift together 2 cups flour, 2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients and stir together. Fold in 2 cups blueberries and sprinkle on the following topping. Bake in a greased 10" springform pan at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. (I didn't have a springform pan, so used an 8x11 pyrex pan.)
1/4 Cup Sugar, 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar, 1/3 Cup Flour, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 Cup Butter. Mix together until crumbly. Sprinkle over the cake batter before baking.
Now, why don't YOU bake this wonderful blueberry cake and have your own tea party in the garden? Or in your dining room...or on the porch...or wherever you can sit down and enjoy a cup of tea with a friend or even by yourself...and just enjoy!
