Blueberry Breakfast Cake

After eating delicious American breakfasts in NYC last week (pancakes, huevos rancheros, doughnuts, scones, bagels!) I came back inspired to spruce up our breakfasts a bit. Conveniently, I had pinned this buttermilk-blueberry breakfast cake on Pinterest a couple weeks ago so I already had in mind what I wanted to try first.

Marlow and I spent the morning trying out a couple new breakfast recipes, and this blueberry cake was definitely our favourite.  Here are some very grainy iPhone photos from this morning with my little blueberry snatcher…

The recipe is from a website called Alexandra’s Kitchen which I discovered from Pinterest. The cake is delicious — moist and light at the same time, and I like the combination of the lemon zest and blueberries.

Perhaps something to try over the weekend? Have a good one, everyone! (And happy Mother’s Day to all in the UK.)

I’m definitely making the cake – since my daughter saw it.
She also noticed Harlow and said ‘Sweaty Baby’ (The coolest rap on Instagram EEEEEVEEEER) . It might not be the most glamorous nickname :/ but Harlow is the most adorable!!

Those nested mixing bowls are lovely. Are they ceramic or melamine? Would love to find a set like that. Thanks for sharing as always 🙂

This is a great recipe. I found it a few years ago and I make this all the time! Everyone always raves about it. It’s my go-to recipe when I want to bring friends something baked. 🙂 Your photos are lovely.

Looks delicious! I think I may make it this week. Something else delicious for breakfast is Smitten Kitchen’s banana bread, toasted, with salted butter and cocoa sprinkled on the top. I think we finished the loaf in the first day!

Looks great! Can you remind your longtime readers where you purchased the large photograph/painting behind the table? I’m looking to have something similar made….Thanks! Jen

Yummy! And I second the question as to the photograph/painting – it is beautiful!

Hi Clara and Jen,
The painting is by Sarah Jessica Adams:
She painted it for us based on a favourite photograph of mine – of my kids and husband on the beach where I grew up. We LOVE it! x

I made this last month, and it was gobbled up by my husband, myself, and our 19-month-old son!
