Welcome back for day 5 of the five-part series, “The Garden’s Bounty,” which has been hosted by Savannah of Hammock Tracks. Five different bloggers have been linking up each day this week and have shared a vast array of recipes that use the delicious fresh fruits and vegetables that are available during the summer season. I hope you have enjoyed this series and have discovered some great new summer recipes! Today we are ending the series on a sweet note by sharing recipes for our favorite summer desserts.
As you may remember, we were blessed to be able to pick blueberries a couple times this summer, so I've been looking forward to sharing our favorite blueberry recipe with you. This was especially a hit with my husband, who has mentioned it several times!
Blueberry Pound Cake
Ingredients: 1 cup butter softened 3 cups sugar 6 eggs (brought to room temperature for best results) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 cups all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1 cup sour cream 3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries confectioner's sugar
Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a tube pan or bundt pan. 2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. 3. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after adding each one. Add vanilla. 4. Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. 5. Fold in blueberries. 6. Pour into prepared bundt pan and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from pan. 7. When cool, sprinkle with confectioner's sugar or make a basic glaze and drizzle over cooled cake. 8. This is delicious served with a dollop of whipped cream (not Cool Whip!) or a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Welcome to Yes They Are All Ours -- where I answer the question I've heard more than any other through the years! I share glimpses into my somewhat crazy life as a home-schooling mother of ten children, while seeking to encourage other women to find joy and fulfillment in embracing their high calling as wives, mothers, and keepers of their homes. I hope you'll find refreshment here! ~Elizabeth
