Melt In Your Mouth Blueberry Cake

    1/2 cup butter
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 egg yolks
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/3 cup milk
    2 egg whites
    1/4 cup white sugar
    1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon white sugar

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan.
    Cream butter or margarine and 1/2 cup sugar until fluffy. Add salt and vanilla. Separate eggs and reserve the whites. Add egg yolks to the sugar mixture; beat until creamy.
    Combine 1 1/2 cups flour and baking powder; add alternately with milk to egg yolk mixture. Coat berries with 1 tablespoon flour and add to batter.
    In a separate bowl, beat whites until soft peaks form. Add 1/4 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, and beat until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into batter. Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle top with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar.
    Bake for 50 minutes, or until cake tests done.
