Another simple-to-prepare Ruth Baird specialty, with a light texture and berries that stay in place.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, plus extra for sprinkling over top
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 cups blueberries
  • Nutmeg

Instructions:

Cream butter and 1 cup sugar. Beat in egg yolks. Add flour and baking powder alternately with the milk. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites, then lightly fold in blueberries. Spread batter in a greased 9-inch square pan. Sprinkle the top lightly with nutmeg and granulated sugar. Bake at 350 degrees F about 35 minutes or until top is light golden brown.
