Blueberry Cake with Vanilla Butter Sauce



It's blueberry time, I got some this week at the store and was thinking muffins, bread, and jam and then it popped into my head what about a cake, so here is my recipe I made for Blueberry Cake with a vanilla butter sauce...Mmmm tasty Enjoy!
Serves: 9 squares

What you Need for cake:
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup milk
1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries (frozen blueberries may be used)

What you Need for Sauce:
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg yolk, well beaten
1/4 cup boiling water
Vanilla, to taste

Directions:
Cream butter and sugar; stir in eggs. Sift flour and baking powder together. Add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well. Coat blueberries with small amount of additional flour (to assure even distribution of berries in cake); fold into batter. Pour into lightly greased 8- or 9-inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cut into squares. Top with sauce.

NOTE:  (If you don't have a double boiler, you can use two pans that fit together like my picture here, you put about 1-2 inches of water in the bigger pot and get it to boil then proceed with this recipe)

To prepare sauce:
Cream butter and sugar in top of double boiler.Blend in egg yolk and boiling water. Cook over hot water until mixture thickens, stirring frequently. Stir in vanilla. Spoon hot sauce over servings of Blueberry Cake
cake hot out of the oven
with the vanilla sauce poured over it
and ready to serve
Enjoy
