Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour and sugar.
Then cut in butter until it is the size of small peas. Reserve 3/4 cup of this mixture for crumb topping!
Then, add to the remaining mixture:
Baking soda, salt, unbeaten egg yolks, and milk.
Beat for 3 minutes with electric mixer at low speed! Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold gently and thoroughly into batter.
Spread into greased 12"x8"x2" pan.
Place 1 cup of blueberries over batter. Sprinkle with crumb mixture. Serve warm as a coffe cake, or cold with whipped cream.
This recipe was originally from the 1954 Pilsbury Bake-Off and was then featured in MidCenturyMenu.com! We had to give it a try because of our love of blueberries, and BOY was it worth it.
This blueberry boy bait could snag anybody! ;)
