Blueberries are coming in big here in Michigan and there is a large blueberry farm not far from the cottage where we like to stock up! This is a moist and easy cake to make - perfect for breakfast although we would eat it anytime!!

Another great recipe and video, Kevin and Ralph. Enjoyed the tour of the Mixmaster. Friends of my parents had one like yours. I was so impressed by gleaming stainless steel.

Blueberries are my favorite fruit, alone or in recipes. In fact, I made Blueberry Corn Bread day before yesterday using 3/4 corn meal to 1-1/4 cups flour. I bought a couple of bottles of Blueberry Barbecue Sauce a few years back---don't recall where I found it. Anyway, it was great on pork ribs. Even tried a box of Green Mountain Blueberry Coffee K-cups with the Keurig. It wasn't bad with a dash of cream, but not something I'd want to drink every day.

At any rate, thanks for another fine installment of Cavalcade; will definitely put this recipe to use. The Glen Campbell album was a nice touch, as well.

Kevin, do you think frozen blueberries can be used?

Thanks, Eugene - glad you like the recipe. Your blueberry cornbread sounds wonderful - we also love blueberry anything!

Bob - yes, I don't see why you couldn't use froze blueberries instead. They tend to release more of their liquid because freezing changes the cellular structure of the berry, but I think they would work.

Sounds like a delicious recipe Kevin! You are a true artist in the kitchen!

My grandmother purchased a Sunbeam 12C brand new in the late 50's. She paid an extra $10 at the time for the chrome model over the white model and you are correct, the original bowls were clear glass. I believe the stainless bowls were an upgrade at additional cost. I recall that I looked it up at one point and the 12 series was produced from 1957 - 1967 and was the last of the original classics. I still have hers and it works perfectly. Nothing beats a Sunbeam for Angel Food cake and cookies.

BTW yours is missing the little plastic button on the bottom of the conical shaped beater. This is what makes contact with the bottom of the bowl to turn it while its running. I see beaters for these at thrift stores everywhere so if you run into a cheap pair you should grab them. It will make the machine noticeably quieter as it eliminates the "clanking" noise of the metal on metal contact. I don't think you can just buy the plastic button anymore but it just snaps onto the beater if you do find one.

Hi Kevin

The reason you have clanking is ..Those are NOT Sunbeam bowls but generic replacements, Glass was standard until the mid 60s, the last of the 12s had stainless, I will look and see if I don't have the correct bowls,I think I do, they will work much better.

The Signature has turned out great, I moved my vomicado Frigidaire back in the kitchen, best baking stove I have.

Having lived my entire life in a great agricultural state, I'm still amazed at all of the things that grow in Michigan. How about artichokes, avocados and bananas? I thought the winter snow and ice might stunt their growth.


Yes, bananas do grow in California, but I think they're outnumbered by the slugs. I'll bet you and Ralph have a recipe.

Joe - you named three crops that are not grown in Michigan but as global warming takes over who knows? In the mean time we've got you covered for radishes, turnips and sugar beets!

 The Cavalcade of Food videos demonstrate how important it is to have the right kind of equipment before you fool around in the kitchen. I was very impressed with your Sunbeam mixer. I need another counter top appliance like I need a hole in the head, but ever since seeing your demonstration I decided to look around for one. I picked up one today on eBay for very little money. I hope I can make room for it in the cupboard along with the KitchenAid and the Jenn Air stand mixers.

Like the Mixmaster. I did not realize the older models moved the actual mixer head when the bowl size was changed. My 70s model just moves the bowl turntable itself.

I just used mine this morning to make pancakes, it does a great job.

Let us know how that chrome white version does. I was going to bid on that same model a few months back because I thought the bowl light was neat. That's a late 80s or 90s model. It doesn't have the power port for the juicer, but with the bowl light and stainless steel bowls it was probably the most expensive model at the time. Also with that model, to change the bowl size, you just placed the turntable into the correct hole in the base.

Kevin, I made the recipe tonight, taking it out for a weekend boating trip.  Question, I do not see the amount of Baling Powder in the recipe.  I guessed 1 tsp, but that may have been too much.  Funny, I was using my  kitchen computer and in a hurry,  Scanned the directions, saw no reference to the cinnamon/sugar in the body, so I tossed it with the blueberries -- we'll see how it turned out.  Looked good coming out of the oven.  That will teach me to scroll through the whole recipe before making it, and watch the video....


Always enjoy your stuff, made Ralph's hummus last week...

JOE - that Mixmaster is a beauty! I love the worklight on the bottom. I'm sure the Kitchen Aid won't mind sharing a little room in the cupboard and snuggling with your gleaming Mixmaster!

MATT - I'm sorry - my bad! I don't know why I forgot to include the baking powder measurement in the recipe. It is actually 2 teaspoons. I'm hoping your cake did OK with just the one.

Took it out for our boating Labor day weekend and it was great, everyone loved it.  Even with one tsp. of "baling" powder  --- love auto correct--- it was a hit.  Will make it again.  I did have to turn the broiler on at the end to brown up the top, perhaps the lack of baking powder caused it not to rise enough to brown, everyone loved how moist it was though.
