- 2 cups Flour
- 1 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1/2 cup Butter or margarine (cut into small pieces)
- 1 tablespoon Baking powder
- 2 Eggs (separated)
- 1 cup Milk
- 1 tablespoon Vanilla
- 2 - 2 1/2 cup Blueberries
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter or margarine, or mix with an electric mixer on low speed, until crumbly. Reserve 3/4 c. crumb mixture for topping.
To the remaining mixture, add baking powder, egg yolks (reserve whites in a separate bowl), milk and vanilla. Beat until combined, about 1 minute.
Whisk the reserved egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold into the batter.
Pour the batter into a greased 13x9 casserole dish. Cover with bluberries. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over the blueberries. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes, until lightly browned and fully cooked.
- Try replacing the vanilla extract with either an equal amount of almond extract or 2 tablespoons of freshly-squeezed lemon juice for a fun twist.
