Blueberry Cake

Blueberry Cake

Blueberry Cake, so easy to make, so lovely to bake, and perfect for an afternoon snack.

Did I say afternoon snack? Wait. What is that? Does afternoon snack imply an afternoon break? For if it should, to pretend to know it would be rather fake, for an afternoon break is not one that I take.

Not posting on my blog yet this week has felt sort of egregious, but children finishing camp with full free days before school resumes makes one tremendously delirious. I’m serious.

In children come and out children go, then it’s off to the pool in the heat and the sun, sigh, it’s almost done. Core subject reviews needs tending, summers boo boos still need mending, and it’s just never- ending.

What’s for lunch and what’s for dinner, young children think a fun appetizer would sure be a winner.

They say ‘it’s the most wonderful time of the year,’ so very true I fear, for even children we hold so dear. School time is near, I know I shall cheer, for just one single moment to be able to think sort of clear. The time is near, persevere the blear. 

So if you feel dizzy, perhaps in a tizzy, remember Blueberry Cake so easy to make, so lovely to bake. Keep on the track, let the kids kick back in their final fun moments of afternoon snack.

    Blueberry baked anything is so amazing. Thanks for giving me something I can’t get immediately. Having an empty pantry and leaving town for the weekend gives me zero opportunities to make something this delicious!

      Thanks Farin, have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for your heads up on the url, appreciated. This cake is so wonderful, not to sweet and not too plain, just a nice crust on the outside and moist on the inside. Worth baking at a future time!

    This looks almost easy enough for me to make and sounds and looks delicious.
