    -----CAKE BATTER-----
1  cup  Unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2  cups  Sugar
3    Eggs
2  teaspoons  Vanilla extract
2 1/2  cups  Unbleached all-purpose flour
2  teaspoons  Baking powder
3    Egg yolks
1/4  cup  Milk or buttermilk
1  quart  Blueberries; rinsed
    - picked over and dried
    -----CRUMB TOPPING-----
2  cups  Unbleached all-purpose flour
1/3  cup  Sugar
1/3  cup  Brown sugar
1/2  teaspoon  Cinnamon
1/4  teaspoon  Nutmeg
3/4  cup  Unsalted butter, melted

PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 350F. Butter a 12-by-18-inch jelly roll pan and line the bottom with a sheet of parchment or waxed paper. In a large mixer bowl, beat the butter and sugar until soft and light. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition. Beat in the vanilla. Sift together the flour and baking powder and stir into the batter in three additions, alternating with the yolks and milk, beginning and ending with the flour. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Scatter the blueberries evenly over the batter, pressing them in gently. FOR THE CRUMBS: MIX THE FLOUR, SUGARS, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl. Melt the butter and stir it in evenly. Rub the mixture to coarse crumbs by hand. Scatter the crumbs over the berries as evenly as possible. Bake the cake about 40 minutes until batter is firm and crumbs are well-colored. Cool the cake in the pan on a rack. Cut the cooled cake into 24 3-inch squares. Remove the squares from the pan to a platter. VARIATIONS: Substitute 4 cups pitted sour cherries for the blueberries. NICK MALGIERI - PRODIGY GUEST CHEFS COOKBOOK
