Berry Blues

by

     Blueberries are here!      As the strawberries fade away, blueberries make a long-hoped-for appearance in the markets. Naturally sweet and with flavor deep and bright, they’re marvelous in a variety of recipes. Go beyond pie and cobbler and try our Purple Velveteen Cake, either on its own, with frosting, or crumbled into a Very Berry Trifle. Another surprise is Dark Chocolate Blueberry Ice Cream, with no added sugar. Blueberries also make a great complement to citrus flavors and fresh peaches in our Blueberry-Orange Corn Muffins, Bluemade Cocktail, and Peach-Blueberry Ice Cream.      Give our blueberry recipes a try! You won’t be sorry. Purple Velveteen Cake Very Berry Trifle Blueberry-Orange Corn Muffins Dark Chocolate Blueberry Ice Cream Peach-Blueberry Ice Cream Bluemade...

Purple Velveteen Cake

by

     This cake is an answer to disappointing fruit cakes -- you know the ones, made with box mixes and powdered gelatin. This is one of the moistest cakes you’ll ever taste. Plain, it’s a marvelous snack and a slightly decadent breakfast. Frosted, it’s a stellar dessert. The color is positively stunning, surprising, and 100% natural. Additionally, it can be made with frozen berries once the season passes, and it’s a great way to salvage berries that have been in the refrigerator past their prime. Our rendition is for a sheet cake to take to all those reunions and cookouts coming up, but it makes lovely cupcakes as well. Purple Velveteen CakeAdapted from Casual Baker Ingredients For cake: 2 c. + 2 tbsp. flour1 tsp. baking powder¼ tsp. salt1 c. butter, room temperature1 c....
