Blueberry-Brown Sugar Plain Cake

With the summer behind us and fall quickly approaching, I'm posting one of the last summer berry recipes I made this year. Blueberry-Brown Sugar Plain Cake is aptly named and quite tasty for something seemingly so humble.

What it is, is a type of crumb cake without all the fancy toppings - no streusel or crumble to be seen. What you end up with is a fairly thin cake theoretically studded with blueberries. As you can see from the picture, the blueberries settled to the bottom of the cake. I did make it in a slightly larger pan than called for in the recipe so this may account for the sinkage.

Regardless, the cake was moist and tasty with a little hint of caramel-ly flavour from the brown sugar - perfect for snacking or with tea. If desired, you could dust it with some icing sugar for a little pizazz but it really is fine all by itself.

Jen, I love cakes like this one here - not plain at all! The addition of berries is a wonderful touch.

What a gorgeous colour gradation!

I went looking for the last of my blueberries and they seem to have disappeared...I couldn't have made *that* many muffins and pancakes and syrups, could I?

I've had my eye on this recipe for a long time, ever since I got Dorie's book. I think I'm going to have to make it sooner rather than later!
