This blueberry cake is easy, delicious, and full of fresh ripe blueberries–it tastes like summer in a skillet!
I’m not quite sure what’s gotten into me lately. The other day I visited a coffee shop where I perused the dessert case. It was loaded with goodies. But I just couldn’t pull the trigger on the $7 desserts. Maybe I’m just getting cheap in my old age (shoot…I’ve always been cheap) but I just don’t want to spend money on something that might look good, but not exceed my taste expectations. So I ordered an iced coffee and sat down with a bowl of soup. Coffee and soup’s a thing, right? 😉 The soup ended up being quite delicious (and cheaper!) so I ended up a happy camper in the end. Does anyone else struggle with those types of decisions? No? Just me??
I think I’ve become a tight-wad dessert snob because yes, when you put the money out for something, you want it to taste good. But even more than that, I think I know subconsciously that it’s not going to be as good as something I make at home. Does that sound stuck-up? I don’t even care. It’s kinda true–you can’t beat homemade. And this cake is no exception.
When I took my first bite of this, I seriously thought about my coffee shop experience the other day and how perfect this cake would have been with some coffee. You guys, take my word for it–this cake is simply delicious. And it has fresh ingredients in it, like blueberries, lemon zest, and butter. You can’t beat it.
I sprinkled some Golden Barrel raw sugar on top to make it a tad bit crispy. Love that. Soft inside, with a crispy sugar top. You can really taste the lemon zest in here too, which pairs perfectly with the fresh blueberries.
So for the cost of (probably less than) a slice of that coffee shop cake, make you some of this blueberry cake. Invite a friend over for coffee and serve this. It’ll make everyone’s day. 🙂
