Fancy Breakfast Friday: Not Donuts


Did you know it’s National Donut Day?  I don’t see why these things are always announced on the day of.  Give me a weeks notice to plan to make donuts, or to plan my day around a trip to a donut shop.  Don’t leave me a day late and a donut short. I think I need to make a food of the day calendar that also has a weekly plan ahead section. Never get caught by surprise on pi day, or donut day, or National Rotisserie Chicken Day (tomorrow). Don’t steal this idea, I got laid off yesterday, and I might turn this idea into some sort of money making scheme.  The good news is, I have plenty of time for baking now.

Just like last year, I donated a coffee cake to the school fundraiser. I gave these two options: Blueberry Coffee Cake and Aunt Patty’s Coffee Cake.  The bad news is that the winner said they wanted Aunt Patty’s Coffee cake, and as you know the last time I made it…  Oh wait, you don’t know because it turned out so badly I decided not to photograph it or blog about it.  Long story short, I did a practice run today, and it turned out beautifully.  I took it out of the oven at 10:30 and 2 hours later I was able to photograph all that remains.  I’m not sure it’s worth $1000 or whatever the bidding got up to. (More like $25 I am sure.) But everyone in my house said it’s worth at least $50 so I think I am all set to bake the winners a coffee cake.

    I agree about Donut Day. Seems like it comes up quarterly rather than annually though.
    coffee cake looks perfect!
