Take Me Out to the Ball Game: NY YANKEES!!

Take Me Out to the Ball Game: NY YANKEES!!

My husband and I are pretty big Baseball fans, New York Yankees, naturally. Well, my husband is a pretty big fan of any sports in general. No lie, we once watched the World Series of Darts when nothing else was on! LOL ANYWAY We were […]

Apple Picking!

Apple Picking!

It is fall much to my chagrin. BUT! Apples are in season and we love to go apple picking! However, on the day we went it was almost 90!! Whatever is going on with this weather, I’ll take it. It sure beats freezing my butt […]

Blueberry Muffin Cake

Blueberry Muffin Cake

This cake, you guys.

Its definitely a keeper recipe.

Make again.

Make it for your family.

Make it for your friends.

Tell EVERYONE.

They NEED to make it ASAP.

It’s that good.

I can’t take credit for it though, it came from Cookies and Cups – Blueberry Muffin Cake

Evie and I called for requests on what to make next(we needed a change, something different from our cookies.)

My Brother in Law, Evie’s Uncle, sent us this recipe, requesting we make it.

Boy, was he on the money!! (Thanks Uncle!!)

Gather your freshest blueberries, ask them to bring friends!

We used my deep dish tart pan, the bottom can be easily removed once baked. I had a springform but it was an 8 inch and this was way too much cake for that little pan! So I recommend the 9 inch springform or similar. The removable bottom was definitely key for this cake.

Grease up with nonstick spray and set aside.

Next, we mixed up the delicious topping for the cake.

Seriously, this topping gave such a nice sweetness and crunch to this cake. Please don’t leave it out!!

Then we got to mixing the ingredients for the cake batter, minus the blueberries.

Taste testing
For some reason, Evie enjoys taste testing the ingredients. Fine by me! Then she’ll have an idea one day about how everything will taste together etc.

Mix it up!!

Once everything was combined well, we folded in the blueberries.

But first!

Coat them in a little bit of flour. This way it helps to keep them suspended in the batter and they all won’t sink to the bottom. This batter is fairly thick however, so I’m not sure there would have been an issue. But, I have seen far to many muffins and cakes in my day with the blueberries all sitting at the bottom.

Its entirely up to you whether you do it or not.

We did!

Then we grabbed our crumb topping after putting our batter into the deep tart pan.

Sprinkle generously and use all of it!

Its SO SO Good!!

Sprinkle, Sprinkle
Pop that baby in the oven and just wait for the delicious-ness to rise!!

Once it cools, add the glaze on top.

Don’t leave it out, you’ll regret it.

I promise.

Or maybe you won’t.

Suit yourself.

And now, enjoy.

Don’t eat it all in one sitting 😉

I could eat this whole cake if my stomach would allow me.

Thankfully I had enough willpower to not.

But really though, make this for all your friends.

And, thank Cookies and Cups for the best recipe ever.

(And maybe Evie’s Uncle for bringing it to your attention. LOL)

 

GO. NOW!
