Okay, today is Saturday so let’s have some homework today – don’t worry it’s not going to be hard (think about the theme for the week). Today I want you to do something fun and creative then tell us about us in the comments. Here’s a recipe for a blueberry Bundt cake if you need something creative to do baking is always good fun.

Blueberry Buttermilk Bundt Cake


3 Cups flour

1 T baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 2/3 cups sugar

¾ cup 1 (½ cup sticks)

3 large eggs

1 T grated orange peel (turns out good even if you don’t have this)

2 tsp vanilla

¾ Cup buttermilk (if you don’t have buttermilk you can use milk and put a TBS of lemon juice in it)

2 Cups frozen blueberries


· Preheat oven to 350°

· Butter and flour Bundt pan

· Whisk flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl

· Beat 1 2/3 C sugar and butter in large bowl until light and fluffy

· Beat in eggs one at a time

· Beat in orange peel and vanilla

· Beat in dry ingredients in 3 additions alternately with butter milk in 2 additions

· Fold in blueberries

· Pour batter into prepared pan.

· Bake aprox 1-hour till tester comes out dry.

· Cool cake on rack 10-minutes and then turn out and cool completely.


The batter becomes very thick when you add the frozen berries – that’s okay

Grease pan VERY well.

***Here was how I was creative –I had a can of blueberry pie filling so I put almost ½ of the cake batter in the pan then I took a spoon and my hands made a little place to put the filling being careful not to let the filling touch the sides (that’s why I used my hands, and I couldn’t see really what I was doing) after I had filling all the way around, it was about ½ the can I put the rest of the batter in and baked the cake.

When the cake came out I topped it with the rest of the pie filling and it was sooo good!!!
