To Tuck Inside Your Hat

Last night I made that Blueberry Coffee Cake again. Actually, I made a double batch of the batter and to half of it I added the blueberries—that was one cake. To the other half of the dough I added a cup of peeled, sliced pears and a cup of freshly picked red raspberries. (The fruit was soft and would have mushed up if I had stirred it in to the batter, so I first spread a thin layer of the dough over the bottom of the pan and then I distributed two-thirds of the fruit over top. I gently spread the rest of the dough over the fruit, and then sprinkled the last of the fruit over it all.)


The reason I’m posting about this is because, well, to put it simply, it was sublime. Cake-y, but at the same time densely creamy and cheesey, and of course, fruity.


That’s all I’m going to say now. Just tuck that nugget of information inside your hat, right at the edge close to the brim, ready to be pulled out if you ever decide to make that coffee cake. Which you should.

  1. Hi,
    Not only do you not know me, but this comment has *nothing* to do with blueberry coffee cake. Two strikes against me. Hopefully I'll make up for that with the content of my comment.

    I happened to see your comment on Small Scribbler's blog in which you mentioned having a kid who was recently diagnosed with ADHD. So I thought I would be uncharacteristically bold and hop over here to let you know that, for whatever it may be worth to you, I recently posted on that very topic. Specifically, a few things I have learned over the years of homeschooling my own ADD kids. (Well, okay, more than "a few". I don't do Brief very well. :-) If you are interested in reading it, you should be able to link to my blog via my profile (click on My Website on the left) and from there, scroll to the post entitled "KWAD Schooling". You won't have to scroll very far.

    As for me, I am bookmarking this post so I can come back to that blueberry coffee cake recipe. (That's what "tuck it in your hat" means, right? Bookmark it.)

  2. Think this would freeze well?

  3. 40winkzzz, Thank you so much for speaking up. I will be a-visiting your blog very soon. I'm needing all the help I can get...

    Anonymous, I haven't tried freezing it, but I don't see why it wouldn't do well. We've just never had it sit around long enough to make it down to the basement freezer.
