1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2  tsp salt
2 cups fresh blueberries
1/4 cup flour for blueberries
1/4 cup sugar for the pan
butter for greasing pan
10" tube pan or bundt pan

Preheat oven to 325°.  Grease pan and dust well with 1/4 cup sugar.

Combine 2 3/4 cup flour with baking powder and salt.

Dredge blueberries with the 1/4 cup flour and mix well to coat.  We use fresh blueberries, but frozen work well too.  

Cream butter and sugar; add eggs one at a time.  Mix well each time.  Add vanilla and mix well.

Slowly add dry to butter mixture. When fully incorporated, fold in blueberries.  Batter will be very thick so some of the blueberries may get mashed up in the process.  

Bake until golden brown on top and cooked through, 75 minutes in our oven.  It's okay to have a bit of a moist, "sad" streak in middle of the cake when you remove from oven.

Cool, then dust with powdered sugar.  Serve at room temperature or toasted with some lemon curd or blueberry preserves on the side.

Store well-wrapped at room temperature.
