Blueberry Muffin Streusel Cake

Secret Recipe Club
The Secret Recipe Club - group B has its reveal today.  Of late, I have been getting blogs that are relatively new to me and that is fun.  Venturing into a new blog is an intriguing experience, opening a door, looking around, cheering and shouting at all that is to be seen.  Then there are the surprises, maybe a gluten-free blog, one with tons of veggies or maybe lots of chocolate.  The adventurer has no idea what to expect and the fun is in the looking.

My blog has some really interesting recipes that I would have loved to make but did not have some of the ingredients and in this crowded month, everything has to be as easy as possible.  I found lots of recipes, I do want to make, when I have time to pick up the missing ingredients.

Even at that, I settled on 5 recipes and decide to treat my hubby to one of his favorites, a blueberry coffee cake.  Since this recipe belongs to This Mama Cooks on a Diet, I must apologize to Mama.  I carefully put the cake in the oven and two minutes later, I spotted the blueberries, on the counter.  I grabbed the cake pan and dropped blueberries on top, messing up the streusel as well as the total look of the cake.  This good did not diminish the deliciousness of this cake.

Mama is one busy woman who has faced challenges and obviously overcome.  The blog is good food and inspiration.  I enjoyed myself as I read posts and lots of information.  You should drop by and see for yourself.

  12. This looks great and I totally have done the "leave an ingredient out of the recipe by mistake" thing. A lot. In fact, did it last night making dinner.
