Bread Baking Babes summer fun: Blueberry Coffee Cake

When we decided to move across the pond we sold our house and moved into a rental for a year to get organized.

The rental house was in the city and one of the great things about living there was being close to a big farmer’s market.

One of my last purchases at that market was 4 punnets of fresh blueberries.

We were in the midst of the final packing and my intent was to pick up just enough fruit and vegetables for our last few days.

The guy selling the blueberries was packing up to head home and he had 4 punnets left.

The sign said $1.50 per punnet.

He offered them to me for 50 cents each.

We had blueberries with yogurt, blueberries with ice cream, blueberries with blueberries….

I love blueberries.

We don’t have them here.


I love coffee cake too, so Judy, of Judy’s Gross Eats, our host kitchen for the month chose the perfect bread for me.

Sadly, though I have waited patiently, none has been delivered to my door.

Another Sigh…..

On the other hand – the Babes seem quite happy with their work.

  1. No blueberries where you are?! How tragic. (Aren’t myrtilles pretty much the same as blueberries?) If only I had known, I would definitely have sent you some of our coffee cake. But someone(s) ate it. The next one has your name on it.

    • Myrtilles are supposedly the same – but I think they are small and tasteless. I had the real thing in Minnesota! I know all about those nameless souls who eat all the good stuff when it’s not locked down!

      • Aha. I wondered. We’ve only once had myrtilles sauvages – in a dessert at a restaurant in France – the server was quite proud and suggested we should have the dessert because it was special to the region. We tasted it and thought – hey, these are like cultivated blueberries. The dessert was good…. But, I know what you mean. Once you’ve had the real thing, it’s just not the same. It’s like service berries here. Locals imagine that they’re the same as Saskatoon berries. But no. They are wrong. If they had ever tried Saskatoon berries, they would know.

        Oooh! If we could get hold of Saskatoon berries, THOSE would be good in the coffee cake….

  2. Ah, so sad! Nobody sent any! I have some left in the freezer, but somehow I don’t think it would cross the pond well. 🙁 You could always try another fruit! I was tempted to use some apricots with the rest of the dough…
