Pipe Dream #137: To Help A Girl Out – Blueberry Boy Bait

Be you single, taken or seeking, if you need to bait you some boys, this recipe suggests itself. And also suggest it. It’s pretty yummy.

May I also suggest this caramel praline bread pudding? How about some white chocolate vanilla bean cheesecake? Or potentially these chocolate chip cookies?

I guarantee their effect.



Just trying to help a girl out,


Blueberry Boy Bait

Adapted from Cook’s Country via smittenkitchen

Serves 12

For the cake:

2 cups plus 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon table salt
16 tablespoons unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (no need to defrost)

For the topping:

1/2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (do not defrost)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine two cups of flour, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl. With electric mixer, beat butter and sugars on medium-high speed until fluffy, about two minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until just incorporated and scraping down bowl after each addition. Reduce mixer speed to medium and beat in one-third of flour mixture until incorporated, followed by half of the milk. Beat in half of the remaining flour mixture, then the remaining milk, and then the remaining flour mixture. Toss the blueberries with remaining one teaspoon flour, and gently fold them into the batter. Spread the batter into prepared pan.

For the topping:
Sprinkle the blueberries over top of batter. Combine the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl and sprinkle that over the batter as well. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 20 minutes, then turn out and place on serving platter. Serve warm or at room temperature. The cake will keep for 3 days stored in an airtight container.
