Fancy Breakfast Friday is going strong 3 weeks in. Last week’s breakfast was blueberry buckle with vanilla crumb with a side of breakfast sausage and an egg made to order. I had to go overboard on the protein since I was basically serving cake for breakfast. The recipe is from this cookbook: Rustic Fruit Desserts. I’ve also made the strawberry shortcake from that cookbook and it is amazing. I had mixed results with the plum cake.
This recipe is actually for a cranberry buckle, and the reason I initially made it was to use up cranberries during the holidays, but the cranberries were just way way too tart. Blueberries make this perfect. It also calls fora 9×9 pan, which I don’t have. So I did a lot of calculations lxwxh, a=piR2 etc to convert 9×9 to either 8×8 or 10″ round or 9″ round. I think I determined the 10 inch round pan was the way to go last time, but this time, I used the 9″ round because I seem to have short term memory loss. It turned out perfect and delicious, but I had to cook it for a year and a half, checking every 5 minutes to see if it was done.
