If you happen to love eating cake, warm cake, hot cake even and blueberries then you have come to the right place. This recipe is older than the hills in my family, plus if the blueberries is not what you want in your hot, warm, cold cake, then any other cook-able fruit is available. Good thing is, it does not take long to make. It is necessary that you cook this in a medium-sized pot with a good heavy lid. YOU NEED THE STEAM KEPT IN THE POT> cooks the dough.
FIRST YOU BOIL ON THE STOVE TWO CUPS OF BLUEBERRIES nice cleaned ones. [ or any other fruit] with one half cup of sugar or less, depending on how sweet you want it. You can put more if you want but yuck . . .WHILE this is getting ready to boil . . .Do this.
For the cake-ish part all you need is:
1. two cups of flour mixed with
2. four tea-spoons of baking powder mixed with
3. one half tea-spoon of salt . . .MIX IT ALL TOGETHER IN THE SAME LARGE BOWL
Then . . .cut in with two knives, one-quarter cup of shortening. This means quickly slice the block of shortening sitting in the MIXTURE of the dry ingrediance until the size of peas, then add one cup of milk and mix with a fork until the dough is smooth, then take tablespoons of the mixture and drop them into the now boiling pot of berries [fruit] COVER with the tight lid and . . .
Cook on stove for 15 minutes, turn stove off letting the pot sit for ten minutes still covered then EAT.
Don’t forget . . .YOU NEED THE STEAM TO STAY IN YOUR POT WHILE IT COOKS.
