  • 3 Tbs. sour cream
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2 cups of flour


  1. In a medium bowl combine dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt.

  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  8. Line a 13 x 18 baking sheet with parchment paper (dab the bottom of the pan with Crisco shortening to prevent the paper from sliding around).
  9. Grease the parchment paper, bottom and sides, with Crisco shortening.
  10. Drop spoonfuls of dough all around the bottom of the lined pan, then smooth it evenly by using the back of a spoon, repeatedly dipped in water to prevent sticking. You can also place the dough on a floured waxed paper, cover it with another piece of waxed paper and roll it with a rolling pin to the size of the baking pan. Then transfer it onto the baking pan.
  11. Using a fork, prick the top of the cake dough, and bake 12 minutes in the preheated oven.

  13. Remove cake from the oven, spread the prepared blueberries evenly over the hot cake.
  14. Top with the prepared crumbs, by shredding it on a large eye shredder, and bake for another 25 minutes, or until the crumbs turn golden color.
