No More Singing the Blues:

A Basket of Blueberries Saves the Day


One good turn deserves another!

That’s why we’re back in the kitchen for a second day in a row. Whipping up a little something universally loved… coffeecake.

You can use either the scratch recipe link or a super-easy mix.

And remember to invite someone over to share its deliciousness. 

Then you’ll both be no more singing the blues!

Blueberry Buckle Coffeecake


Quick tips when shopping for the super-easy mix version:

Pick up a Krusteaz Cinnamon Swirl Cake Mix in the baking aisle. Swing by the fruit section for a pint of blueberries. Add eggs, butter, and salad oil to the cart and you’re ready for fast checkout.

Back at home, use box directions AND gently fold rinsed berries into batter, reserving ALL cinnamon streusel for topping. Bake in a buttered square pan (8×8 or 9×9), adding 5-8 min. to baking time.
