covering a lot {of ground}

this is where I get my super power.  coffee and yum. 
I made Meg's blueberry buckle last summer...and loved it.  But Doug likes more of a coffee cake type dish and her recipe wouldn't fit in my springform pan...so I searched high and low for another recipe. 

here is what I found:

Blueberry Buckle

Ingredients
Cake ingredients:
  • 2 cups and 1-2 Tbsp of sifted, all purpose flour separated
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 pint blueberries
Topping ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar (I used brown sugar instead)
  • 1/3 cup sifted all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease an 8-inch springform pan. Set aside.
2 Sift together the 2 cups of flour, the baking powder and the salt. Set aside. Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg. Add the flour mixture in 3 parts, alternating with the milk. Toss the berries with the remaining 1 to 2 tablespoons of flour (to separate and scatter evenly throughout the batter) and fold in. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Set aside.
3 Combine ingredients for topping with a fork to make crumbly mixture. Sprinkle this over the batter.
4 Bake for one hour, then test for doneness by gently inserting a fork. If it does not come out clean, give the cake another 5 to 10 minutes to bake.
5 When the cake has cooled, run a knife around the edges and lift the cake out o the pan. Serve with whipped cream.

I made three of these in about an hour...not counting baking time. :) Two for neighbors and one for us...though I just got blueberries on sale again...so I see another in our future. :)

And I have been working on improving my signs...I think I found love.
And more love...
And more. 
And in boy news...we have been enjoying the summer...water...cold foods and fun.  Yesterday was 105.  That is just plain gross. 
Moses went to see his first movie in a theater.  His super great dad took him.
And it was 3D.  He loved it.  :)
Hoho is mastering the fork...and peed on the potty this week.  If only that would mean he would be potty trained soon...he tries to go everyday...
And here is Moses showing off one of the many huge trees that fell during that crazy storm we had a couple of weeks ago!

In other news...we have some new awesome advertisers coming...it's not to late to join them! :) Email me for rates! 

And depapering those squares is taking way longer than I thought...so I am plugging away at it...slowly but surely.  Hang in there!

Happy Thursday to you!

Hey Crystal! Here's a tip for de-papering your quilt blocks. Take a spary bottle and mist the seams on each block. Let it sit for a second and your papers will remove more easily.
