As Channel 2 employee alumnae, we're looking forward to being a part of the WGBH Food & Wine Festival 2016 on Sunday, September 18.
We're going to be demonstrating A Little Girl's Blueberry Cake as part of the Brunch Bar Program. Please come to see us at 1:15 PM.
We found the recipe for this delightful recipe handwritten in the back of a 1932 copy of Kitchen Fun, A Cookbook for Children, by Louise Price Bell. The recipe looked so simple and delicious, we decided to make a few adjustments and bake it as two loaves of Blueberry Cake- one to serve and one to give away! It must have been a very special recipe for the little girl who owned this cookbook for her to have recorded it. We added the cinnamon and nutmeg and the coarse sanding sugar on the top.
NOTES: Photo of A Little Girl's Blueberry Cake on a Stafordshire blue and white dish drainer, by Andy Ryan. The dish drainer is from the middle of the 19th century and was used to separate a roast from its gravy on serving platters. It was purchased in the middle of a snow storm many years ago in Newburyport, Massachusetts at a sidewalk sale.
