Grandma's Blueberry Pudding Cake

The kind folks at Gooseberry Patch have asked us to do a review of a yummy cookbook!  They also gave us a copy to giveaway to one of you!!!  (Scroll down for the details!)  You will love 101 Blue Ribbon Dessert Recipes!  I will be sharing four yummy recipes with you, but there are so many more we'd like to try you may just see them here in the future!

Today we'll share what is called Grandma's Cherry Pudding Cake (p. 26) but we were out of cherries and had blueberries on hand so it became a blueberry pudding cake.  Also we doubled the recipe and used a 9"x13" cake pan.

Grandma's Cherry (or Blueberry) Pudding Cake
1/4 c. butter, softened
2 c. sugar, divided
2 c. all-purpose flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1 c. milk
1 c. hot water
2 c. sour cherries, pitted (or 2 c. blueberries)
Optional: vanilla ice cream

In a bowl, blend butter and one cup sugar; set aside. In a separate bowl, mix flour and baking powder.  Add flour mixture and milk alternately to butter mixture. Stir until smooth; turn into a greased 8"x8" baking pan.  In another bowl, mix remaining sugar, hot water and cherries.  Pour over batter in pan; do not stir.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.  Carefully remove pan from oven.  Dessert will be thin on the bottom, with cherries and cake on top.  As it cools bottom layer will thicken into a sauce.  Serve warm, scooping out cake and spooning some sauce over top.  Garnish with a scoop of ice cream, if desired.  Serves 9.
