Cooking Through Gooseberry Patch


We started cooking through Gooseberry patch by making Blueberry Coffee Cake. Sam’s also had blueberries on sale during the shopping trip I purchased the Gooseberry Patch cookbook. This was excellent. As a bonus this does make a full 9×13 pan of blueberry goodness, so there is plenty to be had by all. I think this would makes lovely addition to any “breakfasty” event. Even with the the 1 cup of blueberries (which I got on sale) this can be an economical breakfast, just wait for a sale on the 1 cup of blueberries needed for this recipe.

Blueberry Coffee Cake
2c whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup (honey)sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/3 cup butter
1 cup raw milk
1 egg
1 cup blue berries
Streusel topping:
1/2 cup pecans chopped
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 teaspoon butter
Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons raw milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Bake at 350* for 40 minutes

Sadly these were so good I failed to take a picture before they were engulfed! Also the the recipe I listed is how I made the Blueberry Coffee Cake and not an exact copy. I am not going to list all the recipes that I use in the gooseberry patch cookbook because you need to buy it. This one is so good it should cause you to run to Sam’s club and buy one for your self and a couple more for Christmas. We’ve already made 3 items from the book and we are looking forward to the rest of the foods we will sample. But I’ll end this review now so you can go to Sam’s or any near by bookstore, I think you’ll like it!
