When my children were young and the house was full, we baked a lot!
Nowadays, if I bake it, I'll eat it, so I generally don't. Not that I don't want the delicious baked goods, but if they're in the house, I have no willpower.
We have a lovely muffin shop one block away and they make an excellent coffee cake.
So I was looking forward to a week off to write, and coffee cake to have with my coffee while I worked.
Except, suddenly last week..... NO MORE COFFEE CAKE.
Fortunately, I discovered a boxed mix in the supermarket.
Okay, go ahead and say it again all you "from scratch" bakers.
I know. But it looked so good.
When we're in Maine in the summer, the local bakery sells a delicious blueberry coffee cake. I decided to doctor mine. I added an entire bag of frozen blueberries and (way too many) walnuts.
Fenway and I were out walking yesterday. Look what we saw IN FEBRUARY in NEW YORK!
