coffee break: blueberry crumb cake

I’ve been enjoying a little extra free time this past week. I did a bit of re-organization in the office, got rid of a few more boxes (I think we just have 4 or 5 left from the move), and spent a lot of time in the kitchen.

I haven’t made this cake in a few months, but every time I do I think I love it a bit more. You wouldn’t think blueberries and cinnamon could be so good and addictive. It’s a crowdpleaser, the perfect make-ahead brunch contribution, and I love having it around for afternoon coffee breaks.

I used a smaller pan this time around for a thicker slice and it worked well.

recipe: french breakfast muffins

One day last week I came across this French breakfast puff recipe¬†and it was one of those moments when I just wanted to shake Pinterest warmly by the hand. The recipe instantly looked familiar to me and I recognized the “Puffs” as a treat from my childhood. We called them French breakfast muffins and I think my mother got the recipe from her grandmother.

I made a batch this weekend and they tasted just as lovely as I remembered.
