Servings 12


  • 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.
