Blueberry Loaf Cake

Blueberry Loaf Cake
(adapted from Taste of Home recipe)
Preheat oven at 350 degrees
Grease one 9x5" loaf pan

1/2 cup butter, softened (I use Becel too and it works)
1 cup sugar (I used less)
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

2 - 4 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon

recipe adapted from the Taste of Home recipe

 Cream butter and sugar till fluffy.  Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla.  Combine flour and baking powder; add to cream mixture just till combined.

Pour 1/2 the batter into the greased pan.  Gently layer blueberries over top,  add the rest of the dough over the berries.*  Sprinkle the topping and bake about 50 minutes (or until done).
Cool in the pan about 10 minutes before removing.  Cool completely.
* My tip:   Adding the blueberries this way rather than mixing them into the dough prevents you from getting 'blue dough.'
