Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake

Since I was confined to crutches all of December and much of January, I haven't been baking. No holiday baking, no Christmas cookies, no homeade garlic rolls...nothing in the kitchen department. And boy, have I missed it. This past week I have been trying to get around more without the crutches and thought it would be a good time to try out some easy recipes in the kitchen. My husband came home with fresh blueberries from the market this week (huh?? fresh blueberries in January??) and I figured it was now or never to bake something tasty. Enter the Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast cake...


I made this for my kids as a special breakfast treat. It does taste amazingly like cake and won't become an everyday indulgence. But it was delicious and appreciated by my kiddos!


I ended up using frozen blueberries because my kids ate the fresh ones so fast I couldn't get my hands on them. And I didn't have buttermilk. So I made my own. You add 1 tbsp vinegar to a 1 cup measuring cup. Then add milk to reach 1 cup. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and use that as a substitute for the buttermilk. My kids have already requested this again for breakfast so I think it was a hit.

Here is where I found the recipe: Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake

Expect to see more baked goods in the future! I think my baking days are baaaack!!!

So, one day you stamp a cupcake, and the next day you bake a cake? I see a fabby trend here, and a so glad I discovered your blog. It's going to be delicious, I think. Your cake looks so yummy--glad your kids liked it. I am in Cardiff, which is North Coastal San Diego. So, in PTI terms, we are neighbors.

Oh yum! My DD would love this. She too eats the fresh blueberries before I can use them. I bought 2 packages the other day and they were gone in a flash--she sits and eats them by the fistfuls!
