In the contest for vintage desserts with cute names, there is only one real contender: Blueberry Boy Bait, and July, being national blueberry month, is the perfect time to make it. There are a bunch of versions of the recipe on the internet, I used the Smitten Kitchen one since it has a generous helping of butter and blueberries and cinnamon. Yum. If you click on the Smitten Kitchen link it will take you to this very easy and very old fashioned recipe.
Blueberry Boy Bait was developed by a 15 year old girl in 1954 when she entered the junior division on the Pillsbury Bake Off contest and one second prize. It would seem that the first prize winners creation has been lost to the ages, but Blueberry Boy Bait helped no doubt by its adorable name has survived. You can imagine the cake being served at a party full of young mid century teens, like in the advertisement below.
