1 8-inch square cake


  • ½ cup butter

  • ¾ cup white sugar, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 egg yolks

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • cup milk

  • 1 ½ cups fresh blueberries

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 2 egg whites

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8-inch pan.

  2. Beat butter and 1/2 cup sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until soft and fluffy; mix in vanilla and salt. Add egg yolks and beat until creamy.

  3. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour and baking powder in a bowl; add alternately with milk to creamed mixture.

  4. Toss blueberries with 1 tablespoon flour in a small bowl. Add to the batter and fold in gently.

  5. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until soft peaks form. Add remaining 1/4 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, and beat until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into cake batter.

  6. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon sugar over top.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 50 minutes.
