Whole-Grain Blueberry Coffee Cake

Oh Dear Reader,

Do I have a treat for you!

Meet my new favorite morning treat…

This baby would be PERFECT for Christmas morning coffee (or diet coke in my case)…

It can be found in the pages of Gooseberry Patch’s Yet-To-Be Released Fresh from the Farmstand due out in January (available for pre-order).

Oh… did I mention I have two copies in hand as we speak thanks to the GOODe people at Gooseberry Patch?

And, one of those copies is anxiously sitting here wanting to go home with one of you… BEFORE it is available in stores… so, don’t forget to enter to win ;)

Anyhoo… back to the deliciousness…

This is one of those awesome recipes that lets you dump everything in a bowl at once, mix it up and pour it in a pan.

1 Cup Long-Cooking Oats

1 Cup Hot Cereal…

If you are like me and wondering what exactly “Hot Cereal” is…

We call it Cream of Wheat ’round these parts ;)

3 T Melted Butter

1 Cup All Purpose Flour

1 Cup Brown Sugar

1/4 Cup Oil

1 T Baking Powder

1 Cup Milk

1 Egg (slightly beaten)

1/2 Salt

Mix ‘er all up

Add two cups mixed berries… or, in my case… blueberries, because that was all I could find at the grocery store this time of year.

Fear not, these blueberries did right by me… and I was wayyy grateful for them since blueberry season is long over in Indiana.

Then add 1/4 Cup chopped walnuts and fold the berries and walnuts into the batter.

Folding for those who don’t know is where you take your spatula and gently bring the batter up and over the berries so that you don’t burst the berries while mixing…

I still remember in home ec as a kid when a boy in my group (names have been removed to protect the guilty) went all stir crazy with the blueberry muffin batter and turned the entire batter to a pretty violet hue that our teacher didn’t find so pretty…oh the humanity…

Once it is nice and combined, pour the batter into a greased 9 x13 and bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until the cake passes the toothpick test.

Oh for those were wondering, I am still adoring my Le Creuset bakeware.

Serve warm (or at room temperature)… either way it is yummy yumminess!

    Yummy!!! Hey, Cris…do you think the recipe would work if I used Cream of Rice instead of Cream of Wheat for my gluten boy?

    Mmmm I adore blueberry coffee cake.  I haven’t made it in awhile (and I admit – mine has a streusel topping which is AWEsome), but I think I might have to change that.
