Wow, it has been awhile!  I feel like I am visiting an old friend.  I have taken the past couple of weeks to spend time with family and friends, organize and clean my house and just get caught up on some things that summer seems to have breezed right by for me.  Thank you for your patience!

What better way to jump back in than with this welcoming, comforting Blueberry Muffin Cake?  If you are like me, for the past few weeks you have been enjoying the plethora of summer produce that we have this time of year thanks to farmers’ markets.  I purchased a few pints of blueberries for $1 each (!!!) and was looking for something to do with the last pint.  I already have my favorite blueberry muffin recipe from my mother-in-law, but I liked the twist that this Blueberry Muffin Cake from Fine Cooking offered.

I adapted the recipe for this Blueberry Muffin Cake a bit by coating my blueberries in some cornstarch before mixing them into the batter.  I find that adding this simple step, helps the blueberries to stay suspended in the batter so that you don’t end up with a cake with all of the blueberries sunken to the bottom.  I think this cake is so pretty especially dusted with a bit of powdered sugar to finish it off.

My husband commented on the wonderful crust that this Blueberry Muffin Cake had which you don’t get with individual blueberry muffins.  If you are looking for a quick and easy, yet scrumptious breakfast treat, Blueberry Muffin Cake will be one of your new favorites.

    Love this! I make a blueberry muffin cake, too. I love cakes rather than muffins b/c they’re faster to make. Slap it all in one big pan! Yours is so pretty!
