Someday I’m going to conduct a poll to discover the most popular dessert. Preliminary trials among friends and acquaintances indicate that strawberry shortcake (made correctly, of course, with biscuits and not slabs of anemic , thin, tired sponge cake) will come in first , with chocolate cake in second place.

This has surprised me a bit, for I had previously thought that one of the pie varieties would come first. It has been interesting to watch folk’s reactions. Many men have written apple pie first, then crossed it off. Blueberry, cherry and chocolate pie are high on the list, but as of today, strawberry shortcake is leading, with chocolate cake second.

A genuine shortcake is superb eating. Use brown-crusted, hot-hearted biscuits generously lathered with butter or margarine. If you have never tried a blueberry shortcake, today’s recipe for a sauce may interest you. I worked on this for quite a spell to get a formula that hit me just right.

Use one pint blueberries, washed and drained, one third cup of water, one tablespoon butter or margarine, two thirds cup of sugar, two teaspoons cornstarch, one eighth teaspoon allspice, and one eighth teaspoon salt.

Put berries and water in saucepan. Cook easily until mix boils, stirring occasionally. Add butter.

Mix dry ingredients together and add to the berry mixture. Boil gently for about seven minutes, stirring all the time. Serve hot or cold on hot buttered biscuits.

No kidding! I experimented with making blueberry hamburgs. They were good!




1/3 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (I defrosted mine in the microwave)

1/3 cup onion

2 paddies of hamburg

¼ tsp rosemary





Mix all ingredients together and fry, broil or grill!




1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp grated lemon rind
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 cup blueberries tossed with flour to coat

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 9X5X3 inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, mix the butter, cup of sugar and lemon juice. Beat in the egg.

In another bowl, mix the flour, baking power and salt. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk, stirring just enough to blend. Stir in the blueberries, grated rind, and nuts. Pour the batter into the greased and floured loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven. Bake 60 minutes.(Time may vary depending on the wetness of the berries.)

Cool 10 minutes and then remove the bread from the pan while still warm. Drizzle lemon glaze over the top and into the cracks that form while baking. Store, foil wrapped for 1 day before slicing.

2 Tbsp bread crumbs
2 Tbsp brown sugar

5 cups blueberries
2/3 cup sugar
3 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon

1 slightly beaten egg
2 pie crusts for 9 " pie

Preheat oven at 400 degrees.

Combine crumbs and brown sugar. Sprinkle half over the bottom pie crust. Put the rest of the crumb mixture aside.

Mix blueberries, sugar, flour, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Put mixture in bottom pie crust. Put top pie crust on and brush on beaten egg. Sprinkle remainder of the crumb mixture on it.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then lower to 350 degrees for 45 more minutes.

2 Tbsp butter or margarine
1/2 tsp grated lemon peel
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
