"This recipe is a childhood favorite that my grandma passed to my mom and now I am passing to my own kids! It is quick and easy, and great for summer picnics. Plus, the little ones are fascinated when I tell them the boiling water is the 'mystery' behind the cake. Also great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

We really liked this cake. I would say it is more like a cake-like pie. I guess my pan wasn't deep enough because it overflowed. . .thank goodness I had the pan on top of a cookie sheet.
Thanks for the reviews! Glad you are enjoying this family favorite! If you are having issues with the pie pan overflowing (mine is really deep), feel free to make in a larger casserole dish. I sometimes make in a casserole just to have a prettier dish to take to a party.
this is quite good. i was looking for a recipe to use the last of my blueberry crop and this fit the bill. the only one thing i would change is to add a bit of cornstarch to the berries before putting in the pan. it is a bit soupy when serving. other than that, no complaints. delicious, quick and easy to make. thanks for the post yogurt4k, i will make again!
This was easy and was a big hit at my spinning group. I wish I read the first review, I didn't protect my oven and it over flowed. Otherwise, I loved it and will make this again.
I've been in the overflowing blueberry syrup situation before - & having homegrown, very juicy blueberries nearly ensures a mess - soooo to minimize, I used an 8x8 glass dish. It was fine. I added 2T cornstarch to the berries (very juicy ones) & reduced sugar in the cake part to 1/3c. 'Done in 35- 40 minutes. Done = it bubbles five minutes. The cake part reminded me of a sugar cookie. It's crisp on top, but soft on the blueberry side. A bit too much sugar. 'Not the prettiest dish, but you want to eat it, not just look at it.
