|Weekly staple in our house.|
|I love how pretty these are.|
I knew were going to head out early for a day of fishing with my favorite fishing guide, which meant no time for a hot breakfast, so I whipped up some Easy Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Bread. Again.
|Mmmmmmm.....bananas and chocolate|
So spent my Sunday morning pursuing my Pinterest page looking for something new. Mental block. So I went and did what I do best....layed out in the Texas sun for 3 hours. I love the sun. I flipped through gossip magazine and cooking magazines. Score! I found, compliments of The Baking Sheet, Blackberry Cake. I liked the idea of it. I am liking the idea of baking something that could be a dessert AND a breakfast.
I didn't have any blackberries, but I did peaches and raspberries, so bam. Peaches and Raspberry Cake. It's more like a coffee cake consistency. (think with a nice cup of coffee for breakfast). Was it easy? Yes, was it stressful? Yes. I baked it for 30 minute, as per the recipe, let it cool, got ready to get a nice piece for Hub and it wasn't cooked fully. So I popped it back in the oven for 20 minute. Nope, still not done...twenty more minutes. Note to self, buy a thermometer to check the accuracy of the oven temp.
So after an extended period of baking, it's done. Viola!
It's definitely tasty, but jeepers, not worth the cook time....and it's still a teeny bit gooey. I've got other recipes that are easier and less time consuming (and very tasty). Good thing I'm testing all of these recipes *before* we open our bed and breakfast! :-)
