New England Blueberry Coffee Cake

How many U.S. states have you been too?  I have not been to very many, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to go.  You know those culprits – time and money – that keep us from getting to do what we’d like to do.

So I had an idea that this summer I would travel the country from my own kitchen and invite you to come along.

This week, we’re in the New England states of Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts.   I would love to visit this area of the world, because I hear it is beautiful!  If you’re from New England, please leave a comment and let me know.  And tell us what your favorite regional foods are – links welcome!

I chose to make this recipe for New England Blueberry Coffee Cake.  I found the recipe on AllRecipes.  The only change I made was the baking time.  The time the recipe states was no where near long enough.  I also forgot to add the flour to the butter and brown sugar in the topping.  It still turned out, but the flour would have made it more like a crumb topping.

We loved this cake.  It’s full of blueberries, topped with brown sugar and butter and studded with walnuts.  Oh my! [Read more…]

Streusel Cake

This is my sister’s absolute favorite birthday cake.  The moist, yellow cake is marbled with sweet, cinnamon swirl.

It’s easy to make too, because it starts with a cake mix.  Have I ever mentioned how much I love cake mix?

Butter Pecan Crunch Cake

I’ve had a Butter Pecan cake mix in my pantry for a while now, just waiting for the perfect inspiration.  I originally thought to make a bar cookie with it, but decided a snack cake/coffee cake type dessert sounded better.

I need to do a bit more testing on this recipe.  The crumb topping needs more butter and I’d like to work on the cake batter a bit too.  But, this tasted wonderful, so it’s worth testing.  The cake has a sweet, nutty flavor and is topped with buttery crumbs that also have a bit of crunch from the nuts and toffee chips.
