Blueberry Breakfast Buckle

Are you one of those pinners like me who are constantly pinning wonderful recipes and then never getting around to trying them?  I do it all the time and then fall back on the old favorites and never venture into someone bests from their recipe collection. 

Saturday I decided to try a couple of Blueberry recipes that looked perfect for a cold winter Sunday morning.  I had found Blueberry Breakfast Buckle last week when wondering around Pinterest and decided to give it a try.  I didn't have any of the big lush fresh blueberries that were featured in the original recipe but I had flash frozen some very small sweet berries during season last year.  We live in an area filled with blueberry farms so I always try to make sure that I freeze enough fresh berries to get me through the season.

I doubled the recipe and I don't think that effected the outcome but I can't be sure.  The flavor of the cake was very good and the crumble on top was perfect.  The texture of the cake however was very dry, again I'm not sure if my doubling the recipe had anything to do with the texture or if using smaller berries changed the texture but when I try it again I will follow the recipe to the letter. 

If you have some berries that need to be used up give this recipe a try and let me know your results.  My results are no reflection on the original pinner's recipe as I did alter it.

Yep we do our share of blueberry picking every year. I am luck to have a farm the next road over from me, so I can pick whenever the mood strikes. I had 10 blueberry bushes and for some reason hubby didn't realize what they were and mowed them all down :( Did you drain the liquid from the frozen berries for the recipe?

I happen to have some blueberries in the freezer from a berry picking adventure. I have been looking for a new way to use them.

And yes... I do the same with pinterest. I'm learning balance this year, though, so I am learning to go through and cull out before I add too many new things.

Pinterest can be something like a walk in closet to me... dangerous if too full. I might just blog about that now that I think about it.
