I feel like such a slacker!!!

Sorry it's been so long since I've shared any recipes. I just haven't felt like cooking much here lately, much less try new recipes. We did try this one about a month ago and really liked it. We made it with fresh blueberries, and it was absolutely scrumptious!

Blueberry Pound Cake

2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup white sugar
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups fresh blueberries (frozen can be substituted - just thaw and drain first)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 10 inch tube pan with 2 Tablespoons butter. Sprinkle pan with 1/4 cup sugar. Mix together 2 3/4 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In large bowl, cream together 1 cup butter and 2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Dredge the blueberries with remaining cup flour, then fold into batter. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake in the preheated oven for 70-80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for ten minutes, then turn out onto wire rack and cool completely.
