Bait…of the Blueberry Kind

Let's be honest--most of us know that fresh-baked coffee cakes, muffins and blueberry desserts are the way into just about anyone's good graces! For that reason, and because we can't resist a recipe that features our favorite fruit, we decided to give this 1954 Pilsbury Bake-Off original recipe a try with Blueberry Haven's frozen blueberries in Tiffany's kitchen.

Add a cute apron, pearls and a little red lipstick and you're transported back into the 1950's! However, whether you're a fan of high heels or running shoes, this tasty dessert doesn't discriminate. Follow the recipe below to cook it up yourself and win someone's heart!

 1 cup Milk
 2 Egg Whites
 1 cup Frozen or Fresh Blueberries
1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour and sugar.

Then, add to the remaining mixture:
Baking soda, salt, unbeaten egg yolks, and milk.
