Blueberry Bliss Cake
Serves 12, generously

2 cups plus 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon table salt
16 tablespoons unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 cup whole milk (I used unsweetened soy milk, which I had on hand, worked just great)
1/2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (do not defrost frozen ones as they tend to muddle batter

1/2 -3/4 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (do not defrost)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (nice rounded 1/2 teaspoon)

Adjust oven rack to middle position and pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 13 by 9-inch baking pan.

Whisk two cups flour, baking powder, salt together in medium bowl. With electric mixer, beat butter and sugars on medium-high speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until just incorporated and scraping down bowl.

Reduce speed to medium and beat in one-third of flour mixture until incorporated; beat in half of milk. Beat in half of remaining flour mixture, then remaining milk, and finally the remaining flour mixture.

Toss blueberries with remaining one teaspoon flour. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold blueberries into the batter. Spread batter into prepared pan.

For the topping:
Scatter blueberries over top of batter in pan. Stir sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl and sprinkle over batter.

Bake until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean, 45-50 minutes. Cool in pan for 20 minutes, then turn out and place on serving platter (topping side up). Serve warm or at room temperature. Cake can be stored in airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
