I know, I know, almost two weeks since my last post…. just a little bit to long there huh? Well what can I say other then I have been busy learning about running a food website. I have designed romance review websites before but they are a piece of cake compared to designing and running a food site. Learning how to run WordPress, how to run Photoshop and how to take a decent photo of a piece of food has just about done me in. Who would know that getting a good angle with correct lighting on a cookie, a cupcake or a cinnamon roll could be so hard? Well I have to give a great big KUDOS to all the bloggers out there who have been running their own site for years now, I now know your pain and I totally commiserate with you.
Okay I will quit my whining now and get on with the post.
Spicy Blueberry Crumb Cake… yummmm blueberries…. yummm cardamon… yum Susan from Food Blogga for posting the recipe for Strawberry and Cardamon Crumb Cake and giving me the idea of taking two of my favorite ingredients and combining them in to a snack cake that I will be making for years to come. I came across Susan’s recipe about two weeks ago when I was searching for a recipe to use up some extra strawberries that I had hanging around in my fridge. I needed to use up the berries before they went bad and I didn’t feel like the old standby of strawberry shortcake so since I had just invested in a bottle of cardamon for apple pie bread I decided to Goggle strawberries and cardamon and see what came up. Well when I Google for food recipes I Google by images and let me tell you the picture that Susan has up on Food Blogga for her Strawberry and Cardamon Crumb Cake did the trick, it sucked me in and made me say ” I have to make this recipe”.
And make it I did. It was so tender and tasty it got me thinking, which can be a dangerous thing for me, how much better would this be with blueberries? I have to let you know right now that blueberries are my absolute hands down favorite berry. Strawberries… yeah. Raspberries… okay. Blueberries …. ROCKIN and that they are good for you is just a major plus in my book, go little anti-oxidants, go! I added my favorite spice, cinnamon and a touch of sour cream for a tangy tender bite and came up with Spicy Blueberry Crumb Cake.
The cake should be golden brown and have a well risen dome when you take it out just like this…
Make sure you give it time to cool before eating because the blueberries will be really hot and you don’t want to burn your mouth on them, not like I would know this personally… okay yes I do I admit it, and after you have your first bite please drop back by and let me know how much you like it.
Until next time everyone… Enjoy!
