Mark and Lynn read a mystery and find a great recipe...

Lynn got a copy of a wonderful new book by a young author who seems destined for an interesting career.  The book, The Black Squirrel Ball: A Samantha Cummings Mystery reminds us, for some reason, of the great old Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys series (if for no other reason than the catchy title).  In any event, embedded within the mystery is a nice recipe which is as follows:

Blueberry Pudding Cake
                  2 cups of blueberries
                  Juice of ½ lemon
                  ¾ cup of sugar
                  3 TBSP butter (room temp works best)
                  ½ cup milk
                  1 cup flour
                  1 tsp baking powder
                  ¼ cup sugar
                  1 TBSP cornstarch
                  ¼ tsp salt
                  1 cup boiling water
Step 1
                  Put blueberries and lemon juice in the bottom of a well greased 1 quart baking dish.
Step 2
                  Blend butter sugar, milk, flour, and baking powder. Spread over blueberries.
Step 3
                  Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt; sprinkle over batter.
Step 4
                  Pour 1 cup of boiling water over the top of the mixture.
                  Set baker on aluminum foil or on cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 1 hour. Serve warm plain or with vanilla ice cream!
