Blueberry Lemon Brunch Cake

Easy Blueberry Lemon Brunch Cake

There are two types of cake that I will serve at breakfast: streusel-topped coffee cakes and moist, fruit-laden cakes. The fruity cakes could certainly be considered as dessert options, but when cakes are loaded with fruit I tend to feel that they don’t need frosting and that frosting-less cakes are very valid breakfast options (even though they’re still technically cake).

The next time you have a surplus of fruit in your kitchen, consider putting the extras to use in a batch of homemade shrub.

Bountiful Blueberry Muffins

Bountiful Blueberry Muffins

Nothing is more disappointing than biting into a beautiful blueberry muffin at a bakery or coffee shop and finding out that there aren’t very many blueberries inside. Unfortunately, this happens more often than it should (and it really should never happen) because some bakers will stud the outside of their muffins with berries and skimp on berries in the batter.

I would have done it again for their 2011 contest, but I was out of the country when the championship was held. I’m giving the pie contest a nod ... Read More »

Blueberry Apple Crisp

Blueberry Apple Crisp

In spite of the fact that I love to have apple pie around the 4th of July, I find that I often think of apple desserts as fall desserts. This is probably because there are far fewer fresh fruits to choose from at the end of the year when you compare the season with spring, when you have a plethora of in-season berries and stone ...

Fresh Blueberry Waffles

Fresh Blueberry Waffles

A big container of fresh blueberries sitting on the counter is just asking to be used in a recipe. I like blueberries in all kinds of desserts and baked goods, but I have to admit that breakfast foods usually spring to mind when I think about using them.
