Grandma’s Blueberry Mystery Cake Recipe

As mom put it, it looks like a disaster when you put it in the oven, but it turns into a delicious desert!

2 cups of blueberries
1/2 lemon, juice
3/4 cup sugar
3 tbsp butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Topping: 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tbsp cornstarch, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 cup hot water

Place blueberries in the bottom of a well-greased deep dish pie pan or a square cake pan.  Sprinkle with lemon juice.  In a mixing bowl, cream sugar and butter.  Add milk and flour, baking powder and salt.  Mix well and pour over blueberries.  Combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt.  Sprinkle evenly over batter.  Pour boiling water over all and bake at 400 degrees for 50 minutes.
