Saturday Treat

I'm an occasional baker. Just as I am with my quilting, I am with cooking. I seldom follow directions to a T. That process works for most recipes, but doesn't always work well with baking.

Earlier this week I was browsing through my quilt books looking for a pattern that would work with large print fabric. In my Coffee-Time Quilts book I found a recipe for Blueberry Coffee Cake. DH loves blueberry muffins so I decided to treat him with blueberry coffee cake.

It turned out well. Tastes much better than it looks. The only trouble I had was the butter wasn't soft enough to crumble with the cake flour. I'll have to remember that next time.

Thanks for all the welcome comments. I will be keeping up my quilting blog as well as this one so feel free to read both.

Here is another great blueberry recipe. Hubby and son love this one....

Funny, I am the same way with cooking - following a recipe is like torture. I don't mind with baking. But when it comes to meal prep, I like to read the directions and then just go it alone *s* Your coffee cake looks delicious - I bet your hubby was pleased as can be *s*
