Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour or as needed
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar or more to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  • Sift 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Add milk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract; mix into a semi-thick batter.
  • Toss blueberries with about 2 teaspoons flour in a separate bowl; fold into batter. Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until cake is lightly browned, 25 to 30 minutes. Brush melted butter on top of cake and sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons sugar. Continue to bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 5 to 10 more minutes.
