BLUEBERRY BOY BAIT
I am obsessed with blueberries...can't get enough. Fresh or frozen I will take them anyway I can get them! I especially love to bake with them. This is one of my favorite coffee cakes; loaded with blueberries and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.
Mr. Kimball, from ATK writes, "This is my all-time favorite recipe name. It comes from Renny Powell, a teenager from Chicago, who submitted this recipe in 1954 to the Pillsbury $100,000 Recipe & Baking Contest (now known as the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest) and won second prize in the junior division. This is a very light one-layer cake with blueberries and a simple crumble topping. Ms. Powell evidently found it useful in attracting members of the opposite sex and, based on my testing, I would have to agree that it's pretty good bait."
